Will you cry for me, John Boehner?

Healthcare reform activists-- including PDA's Southern Arizona Field Organizer Alison McLeod-- visited US Speaker of the House John Boehner's office in Washington, DC to make him cry for the uninsured and underinsured. Here is McLeod's report and video.

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!
