to look at this option more closely. What exactly is it, and how does it

work. All are welcome. Free.

the hardships that people face who have no insurance, or insurance that

is far less than adequate. He is passionate about health care justice

for all, and educating people about what is possible.

Join us to protest the secrecy surrounding the Senate health care bill

SPAN members will join a coalition of faith groups and unions which have organized a protest action to call on Senator Portman (said to be the lead Senator rewriting the House Health Care bill). The lack of transparency of this process is shocking, as is the expected transfer of money from Medicaid funds to tax breaks for those who don't need them.


Tuesday, June 27th at 5:30 PM on the West Side sidewalk (High Street) of the State House.

 

You can also leave a message for Senator Portman at    866 828 4162
