On Friday, November 17, members of the Hurstbourne Acres Community gathered at the McMahon Fire Department to view “Fix It,” a movie that details the economic and human hardships of our current health care system and promotes single payer as the solution.
Antonio Wickliffe, Doris Bailey Spencer, Harriette Seiler, Christine Perlin, Mark McKinley, and Dr. Edgar Lopez organized the program and worked to spread the word.
The film was followed by a lively Roundtable Discussion about what single payer health care would mean for our country.
HR 676, Expanded and Improved Medicare for All, is the model single payer legislation currently in the US House of Representatives with 120 cosponsors including Louisville Rep. John Yarmuth.
Kentucky’s other five congresspersons, Andy Barr, Thomas Massie, James Comer, Hal Rogers, and Brett Guthrie can be encouraged to sign on to HR 676 by calling them at the Capitol switchboard (202) 224-3121.
You can see “Fix It–Healthcare at the Tipping Point” online at this link.
In addition, KSPH has a power point presentation on single payer health care that is also available.
