Single Payer: Pennsylvania is our Saskatchewan

Washington DC isn't the only place where Single Payer is on the table. States have a role to play too, indeed, perhaps a commanding one. We who demand Single Payer need to work together at all levels!

On October 20, the Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg will resound with the cheers and chants of thousands of Pennsylvanians and enthusiasts from border states eager to get the benefit of having a neighbor with Single Payer Health Care for all its citizens. Movements like this one tend to spread.

It began with Saskatchewan in Canada. It was the first province to bring comprehensive universal health care to all its citizens as a right instead of a privilege. Neighboring provinces flipped from resistance to eagerly adopting their own versions of Single Payer"and now Canada has it as a national policy. The advantages of Single Payer for doctors and patients alike had been demonstrated.

So it begins in America with the October 20 rally in Harrisburg. State by state, we will have the health care that we need so badly. Joining the throngs in the Rotunda will be Donna Smith of SiCKO, Tim Carpenter of Progressive Democrats of America, Katie Robbins, Kevin Zeese, and Russell Mokhiber of the Baucus 8, Chuck Pennacchio of (the sponsoring organization) and dozens of Single Payer Celebrities, and thousands of other Single Payer advocates. They will represent dozens of supporting organizations from Pennsylvania, other states, and the nation.
