"Big Insurance: Sick of It" Rally in Denver!
Advocates of universal Single-Payer health care - the only realistic reform - are taking action tomorrow, September 22, 2009, with a rally to highlight private insurance corporations' role in the denial of healthcare - this time focusing on Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
When: Tuesday. September 22 at 12:00 P.M. high noon!
Where: The Wellpoint Building, 700 Broadway Street, Denver, Colorado. The Wellston Building is between Broadway and Lincoln (southbound and northbound one-way streets if you don't know the area) between 7th and 8th, and it's a large building that you can't miss just north of Speer Blvd.
What: "We'll hear stories from individuals who are suffering under our broken health care system, and deliver a letter to Big Insurance, demanding that they stop denying us care."
Organizer: Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Change That Works.
Everyone impacted by the insurance companies' greed is most certainly invited.
Also, tonight - if you read this in time - for those who live in Colorado's House District 37, which is the Centennial and Southglenn area, your State Representative, Spencer Swalm (Republican), is having a Town Hall Meeting at Southglenn Library in the new mall area, at 7:00 P.M. for a discussion on Health Care in Colorado. Kaiser Permanente will be there to discuss electronic records.
Swalm is a proponent of employer-provided health insurance and helped lead the opposition to House Bill 1273, the Colorado single-payer health care bill that would have, and still might (2010 cycle) implement health care for all people in Colorado.

Rally with students to save higher education!
Monday April 6
West Steps of the Capitol
The Colorado State Legislature's Joint Budget Committee has voted on
and recommended a measure that would cut higher education funding by
50% as well as allowing institutions to have massive tuition hikes.
This not only shows the state's lack of regard for higher education,
On Saturday, April 11 there will be rallies in Boulder and Denver protesting the latest plan for bailing out Wall Street banks. The plan will cost the taxpayers at least $1 trillion. Everyone is invited to come out to send the message to our politicians in Washington D.C. to "Bail Out Main Street, Not Wall Street".
12 Noon, Southeast Corner of College (6th St.) & Main Ave., Durango, CO
12 million unemployed. Foreclosures up 81%. Wall Street has taken over. We must break up the banks and never again let them get so big that they distort our politics and take down the economy.
