Paul Hoppe, Steve Katz, and Mark McKinley (L to R) of Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care joined the March for Medicare for All in Washington, DC, to demand that the nation move to a national single payer health care system to cover everyone. It was July 30, 2022, Medicare’s 57th birthday.
Helping them hold the banner are Dr. Claire Cohen and Dr. Judy Albert, both from Pittsburgh and leaders of PNHP, and NationalSinglePayer, and the Western Pennsylvania Committee for Single Payer. Dr. Cohen, a child psychiatrist, was among the rally speakers. Dr. Albert and other bicyclists rode to DC on the Appalachian Trail in a demonstration for Medicare for All.
On that same day in Madison County, Kentucky, Dr. Robin Reams, distributed flyers at a Kentuckians for the Commonwealth picnic, and Jill Harmer, Harriette Seiler, and Kay Tillow took the message to Louisville farmers’ markets on Bardstown Road and at the Beargrass Christian Church on Shelbyville Road.
