Single Payer Health Care Rally and March Wednesday, June 24th, 11:45am

Come help tell Senator Wyden we want everybody in and nobody out! Gather at the Federal Building (1220 SW 3rd Ave) at 11:45 to hear doctors, nurses and patients speak about our broken health care system and how we can fix it!
We will be highlighting the huge campaign contributions from the medical industrial complex to Senator Wyden, and demanding that he represent his constituents. The majority of the American people believe that the best solution to our health care crisis is to get the insurance companies out of the way by creating a single payer system. We will then march to the Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield office at SW 2nd and Market to highlight Regence's campaign contributions to Senator Wyden and their outrageous rate increases over the last two years.
