Coalition organizes counter-protest to anti-reform event; health care experts available for comment

RALEIGH (March 11, 2010) – A coalition of groups fighting for quality, affordable health care in North Carolina will hold a pro-reform rally in front of Congressman Bob Etheridge’s office on Thursday, March 11.

Etheridge is a supporter of health reform. However, the well-funded opponents of health reform have called for an anti-health care rally in front of Congressman Bob Etheridge’s office beginning at 11 a.m

Pro-health care groups, including the NC Justice Center, are organizing an 11th hour counter-rally, sending a message to legislative allies of health care in North Carolina and around the country.

Experts from the Justice Center’s Health Access Coalition will be available for media comment.

WHEN: Thursday, March 11, 2010, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
WHERE: Meeting at the corner of Fayetteville St & East Davie St (Raleigh, NC) 300 Fayetteville St Raleigh, NC 27601

    The Senate bill is absolutely reform.

    Does it do everything I’d like it to? Of course not. But it’s a step forward, and much better than the alternative of leaving 50+ million Americans without insurance, allowing insurance companies to deny people coverage because of so-called pre-existing conditions, and so forth.

    Any progressive who doesn’t support this bill is making the perfect the mortal enemy of the good.
