Health Care Organizing Kickoff-Ohio Health Care Plan HB 159 (Tue. 16 Jun, 2009 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

Home of Chuck Watts -

4113 W State Route 73 -

Wilmington, OH 45177 -

Please RSVP -


Receive an update on HB 159, the Ohio Health Care Plan, and HR 676, Medicare for All, both of which are currently the only doctor/patient-run health care system bills that have been introduced. 
The alternatives seem to be a variation of the current denial of care system promoted by the insurance and pharmaceutical industries.
During the Great Depression, Social Security was born. FDR did NOT lead the charge, but did NOT block the initiative either. He challenged citizens to make him sign a Social Security bill, i.e. send him a bill. Before Congress sent him a bill, several state legislatures sent their governors a similar bill to sign.
Social Security became a reality because of strong, empathetic and responsible citizen involvement. I hope you'll come join me in this fight.
