MoveOn Healthcare Vigil tonight
In case you are not aware of it, Mimi Shapiro is organizing a MoveOn Health Care vigil this evening on the steps of the Lancaster courthouse. Please attend if you can. MoveOn does not advocate for single-payer as many of us do, but that does not mean we that the single-payer advocates can’t show up in a showing of solidarity with MoveOn for meaningful healthcare reform. (Details below)
Also, for those of you who are not aware of it, the Senate Banking and Insurance Committee has scheduled a hearing on our single-payer legislation at 9 am on December 16th. I hope all of you will try to make it. If you want to car pool (as a driver or passenger) let me know and I will try to act as a facilitator for the Lancaster area. This is the first time ever anywhere (as far as we know) that a Republican majority committee chaired by a Republican Legislator has held hearings on single-payer legislation. Please spread the word and show your support for this bill by coming to Harrisburg on December 16th:
When: Wednesday, December 16, 9:00 - 10:30 AM
Where: Room 8E-A East Wing, Capitol Building
