Yesterday, Dr. Margaret Flowers went to the White House to
deliver her letter in response to President Obama's challenge in his
State of the Union address that others come up with a better approach
to health care reform than his own. She wanted to let him know
about the grassroots
movement for improved Medicare for All
would solve the health care crisis, save lives, and save money.
She was told the White House doesn't accept hand-delivered
Today, Dr. Flowers joined colleague Dr. Carol Paris to try again to
get their message to President Obama, but this time by going to the
Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel, where the president was
meeting with House Republicans, with a large banner reading,
"Letting you know: Medicare for all."
Because they wouldn't leave the hotel sidewalk and refused to have
their message marginalized again, they were both arrested. The
two physicians were briefly taken into custody by law enforcement
officials, issued a citation and then released.
These physicians, along with a growing movement demanding an
improved Medicare for all, national health care system, know they have
the most popular and effective solution to the health care crisis.
Together we must send this message to President Obama. If you
haven't yet, call the White House at 202-456-1111 or send the message
to him here: http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/6055/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=620
Consider forwarding this message to your friends, family, and
colleagues. Let them know we aren't giving up on the fighting
for a health care system that saves money and lives. We need
improved Medicare for all.
Together in the struggle for the health care we need,
Katie, Kevin, Margaret, and the Mobilization Team
P.S. We know we need to keep fighting. If you can, support our efforts
