Doctors for single-payer healthcare


Check out this group of doctors who are traveling across the country from Portland, Oregon, to the Capitol steps in Washington, D.C., speaking out for what they consider the only real solution to the health care crisis: Single Payer/Improved Medicare for All.

In case you can't figure that out, it's Mad As Hell Doctors.

They were in Madison on September 17 and will be in Chicago on September 25-26; that's Friday and Saturday.

One of their slogans is "Get Mad. Stay Mad. Make History."

Want to join it for the ride, or part of it? Fill out the form on their website and expect information by e-mail.

I was talking with a man on the Square last week who told him of one of his acquaintances who had been in the hospital for two weeks. The bill? $96,000. Pretty absurd, isn't it? Who can afford that???

Not even with my Public Aide money can I afford $96k. And I due for a hospital visit- my liver probably looks like cottage cheese.
DOH!
