DOCTORS & NURSES FIRED UP!

Dr. Margaret Flowers speaks at a rally held in Washington of single-payer health care advocates. She was recently arrested, on May 5th, at the Dirksen Office Building, for speaking out at a Senate Finance Committee where single-payer advocates have repeatedly been denied a voice in hearings.

A national day of action for single-payer has been announced for May 30. Events are being planned nationwide.

Want single-payer? Want to take the profit out of health care - do you agree that health care is a human right? Then please rattle your chains and help make this happen.

As the ranks of the unemployed grow daily in the US many more go without any health care coverage.

The Obama "public health care plan"? Have the government subsidize the insurance corporations to cover those without it.....just more of the same that would keep the rich fat cats in control of the system. Doctors and nurses, people that work directly in the system, are telling us that is not the right prescription.

Here in Maine there will be a statewide rally on Saturday, May 30 at the state capitol in Augusta at noon. Mary Beth and I have been invited to speak - to make the connections between endless war and the waste of our resources that could go for a real health care program in this country.

It's exciting to see doctors and nurses leading this movement. We all need to stand with them - solidarity forever.
