Support Representative Tierney THURSDAY @ 12:30PM

As you have probably heard, opponents of health reform have been disrupting town hall meetings with Congresspeople around the country, perpetuating sensational and inaccurate claims about the impacts of public health insurance. The groups behind this effort – largely bankrolled by the health care industry – have called for a rally outside of Representative John Tierney’s Peabody district office tomorrow, Thursday the 13th, at 1PM.

Representative Tierney is one of our best advocates in Congress. He sits on the House Education and Labor Committee, which is one of the Committees responsible for health reform this year, and in this role he has been instrumental in including single payer advocates at all hearings, bringing the first hearing dedicated solely to exploring the single payer option before Education and Labor, and passing an amendment to the current bill that would allow states to adopt single payer and receive necessary federal waivers.

If you can JOIN US tomorrow, Thursday, at 12:30PM outside of Rep Tierney’s Peabody district office, 17 Peabody Square, Peabody, MA 01960, we need all the bodies we can get to support Rep Tierney’s work on health care reform. Please contact us at info@masscare.org if you are able to come, or know someone who can, and we will bring signs for you to hold.

Thank you for your continued hard work!
