Happening in Ohio right now

SINGLE PAYER ADVOCATES HAVE ENTERED THE OFFICE OF SENATOR VOINOVICH AND ARE DEMANDING THAT HE SUPPORT AN EXPANSION OF MEDICARE! CALL NOW AND MAKE THE FOLLOWING DEMANDS! PHONE NUMBERS, FAX NUMBERS, AND SCRIPTS BELOW:

Senator Voinovich
1-866-220-0044 (Congressional Switchboard – Toll Free)
216-522-7095 (Cleveland Office)
216-522-7097 (Cleveland Fax)

“I am calling as a constituent from Ohio and I am demanding that Senator Voinovich vote for the Sander’s amendment, a national single payer plan. As a self proclaimed fiscal hawk, Senator Voinovich should realize that this is the only method that will provide health care to ALL Americans while saving costs. Some inner city school districts in Ohio could save up to 28 million dollars a year on their health care costs. Medicare for All would also create approximately 2.6 million jobs, slightly less than the total number of jobs lost in 2008. In the Senator’s last term in Congress, he should stand up for this moral issue, and realize that health care is a human right. A group of activists in Cleveland are currently sitting in outside the Senator’s office to demand that Sen. Voinovich support the Sanders amendment, and that he donate the $582,516 he received from the insurance and pharmaceutical industries during the 2008 election cycle to The Free Clinic of Greater Cleveland. They will remain at the federal building until Senator Voinovich agrees to these terms or law enforcement removes them. The Senator works for them, and we all say Medicare for ALL, support the Sander’s amendment!”

Senator Sherrod Brown
1-866-220-0044 (Congressional Switchboard – Toll Free)
202-228-6321 (Washington DC Fax)
216-522-7272 (Cleveland Office)
216-522-2239 (Cleveland Fax)

“I am calling as a constituent from Ohio, and I’d like to thank Senator Brown for cosponsoring the Sander’s amendment for a national single payer health care plan. Medicare for All is the only way to provide health care to everyone in America and cut health care costs. We hope to see Senator Brown continue to advocate for real health care reform.”

Once you have made a round of calls, start at the top and make them again! Our goal is to make sure that our legislators know that we support single payer Medicare for All, and any less will not do. Thanks for all of the great work you do!

Yours in solidarity,
