Dr. Margaret Flowers arrested (again) for supporting universal Medicare

Author 2591
Message Mark Crispin Miller
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 which would solve the health care crisis, save lives, and save money. She was told the White House doesn't accept hand-delivered letters.

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 here:
