Katie Robbins of Healthcare-Now collected hundreds of testimonials from people who have suffered under the present profit –driven system - and will suffer more if Medicare and Medicaid are further defunded and privatized. These stories made us cry, and since John Boehner has a tendency for weepiness, we each came armed with a box of Kleenex. Boehner wasn’t there, and his aide called the security guards, so we had to read the testimonials in the hall.
But we left behind the stories – and the Kleenex.
Keep up the fight for universal healthcare!
