JANUARY 27, 2017: DAY OF ACTION in Bakersfield
PROTECT, IMPROVE, AND EXPAND MEDICARE AND MEDICAID
JOIN US IN PERSON OR CALL/EMAIL REP. MCCARTHY
Why Bakersfield? Because Congressman McCarthy of Bakersfield is the House Majority Leader, and is responsible for moving the Republican agenda forward in the House of Representatives. He is a well-known supporter of privatization and reducing spending on programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. We need to show up BIG on January 27th to let him know that we expect him to represent his constituents (50% of the residents in Kern County depend on Medicaid, Medicare or both for their health care). We also will demand that he move the House Majority toward protecting, improving and expanding these programs.
Program for Friday, January 27th, 2017
1pm meet at Yokuts Park, 4200 Empire Dr. Bakersfield
2pm Rally and demonstration at Congressman McCarthy's Office

Chair – Single Payer Now
Trump and the Republican congress want to gut the Affordable Care Act, privatize Medicare, cut back on Medicaid, and privatize the Veteran's Administration.
Trumps attacks on us mean more costs for the 99% and more profits for the 1%.
Trump's dastardly plans also mean more people without healthcare.
Single Payer Now wants to expand healthcare to everyone by passing HR 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act.
Join us for a panel discussion on how to move forward and defend what healthcare we have. The panel is composed of Single Payer Now activists who will report on the National Strategy Conference, which takes place January 14-16 in New York.
Sat. 3pm, Feb. 4
518 Valencia in SF
(At 16th St – 2 blocks from the 16th St BART)
Single Payer Now panelists include:
Barry Hermanson, Norma Myers, Murray Pender, Brian Stompe, and Don Bechler
Sponsored by Single Payer Now

Despite our best efforts, single payer didn't make it onto the 2016 Democratic platform. Caving to calls for party unity, the Sanders campaign backed out of filing a minority report, which would have forced a floor fight over the platform.
While we're disappointed with the outcome of the platform fight, we're thrilled by what this primary race has done for our movement.
This incredible grassroots response to a candidate running on "Medicare for All" has connected thousands to the single payer movement and given renewed energy to our organizing. Over the past couple months, Healthcare-NOW has grown in membership by almost 50%!
The Medicare for All workshop at the Democratic National ConventionIt's difficult to overstate how significant this is for us; a 50% gain rivals the increase we saw during the fight over the Affordable Care Act. Much of the credit here goes to all of you who capitalized on this moment by going out into your communities to talk about single payer and get signatures for the DNC petition. Thank you.
This is the kind of work, carried out by dedicated supporters in their spare time, that paved the way for an insurgent such as Bernie Sanders to offer up a serious challenge to the establishment. We've inspired millions to stand up, challenge the corporatism of the Democratic party, and put single payer back on the agenda - where it will stay until it is passed.
