AMERICANS UNITED FOR HEALTH CARE & INSURANCE REFORM RALLY & March in Washington, D.C. Sept. 13, 2009

Sioux City, IA August 31, 2009:  A rally/march will be held in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 13, 2009 between 12N – 5pm in support of the administrations health care and health insurance reform goals.  It is the goal of Americans United for Health Care and Insurance Reform to let congress know that all Americans need health care and insurance.  Over 47 million Americans are uninsured and millions more are underinsured or at risk of losing their health insurance

The rally/march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial and march to the steps of the Capitol Building via the National Mall.  This rally/march will be peaceful.

Robert Reich has given his support to this rally and march, “….I just want Congress to know how many Americans want universal health care and will settle for no less than complete coverage and no less than a public insurance option, to keep private insurers honest. So I’m happy to lend my support to whatever you are doing.

Americans have enjoyed the freedom of movement, speech and employment.  It is time that American citizens have the freedom that comes from knowing they have affordable health care for themselves and their families.  Health care is not just for the privileged but it is a fundamental right.

Other groups marching on September 13, 2009 for health care reform are Congressman Fattah’s “March for Healthcare”, “Medicare for All”, and “March on Washington for Health Care.”

We invite all those who wish to participate visit our web blog at http://www.americansunitedhcr.wordpress.com and register to rally.

    People are FIRED UP! Don’t let it fizzle!

  2. Why not have several rallies in all the major cities? We need to get more organized and respond with force to show that there is a MAJORITY who needs and wants health care reform.

    LET’S EXPAND THIS MOVEMENT IN ALL THE MAJOR CITIES… I CANNOT COME TO DC, BUT I WOULD PARTICIPATE TO ONE IN BOSTON!!

  3. ConcernedCitizen, I’m developing the movement across all major cities, and we desperately need someone to coordinate something in Boston, or look for like-minded groups to join us! Look at http://www.march4healthcare.com/ and http://healthcaremarch.pbworks.com/ for more info…
