Embark on Cross Country Care-A-Van to Demand Single-Payer from Congress

Frustrated with the health care ‘options’ coming out of Washington, D.C., six “Mad as Hell” Oregon physicians are taking an unprecedented road trip across America to lobby Congress for a single-payer health care system.

Portland, OR (PRWEB) August 13, 2009 — Frustrated with the health care ‘options’ coming out of Washington, D.C., six “Mad as Hell” Oregon physicians are taking an unprecedented road trip across America to lobby Congress for a single-payer health care system. A big part of their plan is to take the entire country with them.

Called a “Care-A-Van,” these road-tripping Oregon physicians will leave in a used motor home from Portland, Oregon on September 8th, inviting doctors and ordinary citizens from other states to join them on their twenty-city tour across the country. Their journey will culminate in a D.C.-based event on September 30th, scheduled to take place on the steps of Congress. Demonstrating with the doctors will be thousands of fellow ‘Mad as Hell’ single-payer advocates, all adorned with the movement’s new symbol – the white ribbon. Their demand: Single-Payer Now!

“We’re mad as hell because our health care system is run by people who profit from illness” says Dr. Paul Hochfeld, lead Mad As Hell Doctor and producer of the documentary ‘Health, Money and Fear.’ “The rest of the civilized world has test driven single payer and it works. But elected officials in America won’t even allow a discussion.” …………Rest of Press Release Here

Mad as Hell

You CAN handle the Truth

There’s no nice way to say it. The financial cost of health care is killing our citizens, hobbling our economy, crushing small business, and threatening the solvency of our government.  In the meantime, the Health Care Industry is spending almost two million dollars a day lobbying Congress and manipulating public opinion to accept “reform” legislation that leaves a vicious, for-profit system intact. The “public option” is a trap.  We need real reform that finds immediate savings, controls costs, and accomplishes the moral imperative of true Universal Access.  A Single Payer plan is the only real path to a Health Care System that is socially, ethically and fiscally responsible. And yet, our elected officials refuse to even discuss the possibility of a Single Payer plan!

If that doesn’t make you mad, we recommend checking your pulse…………Visit Their Site Here

  1. I’m so glad you posted the “press release” and videos that have been released for Mad as Hell Doctors.  Just since Thursday evening, when I posted this, there has been a lot more exposure, which I, too, noted this a.m., and I’m thrilled that that this effort is getting more and more attention.  I think it’s a great and innovative idea and one which will surely draw a ton of attention and “joiners” to the cause.

    Progressive Democrats of America has joined in promoting Mad as Hell Doctors, as well!

    Couldn’t happen at a better time when Obama appears to be backing away from the “public option” plan and may go for co-ops, instead.

    Sebelius said the White House would be open to co-ops instead of a government-run public option, a sign Democrats want a compromise so they can declare a victory on the must-win showdown.

    “I think there will be a competitor to private insurers,” she said. “That’s really the essential part, is you don’t turn over the whole new marketplace to private insurance companies and trust them to do the right thing. We need some choices, we need some competition.”


  2. This is, imo, the most important section in th press release:

    “The public option is a trap.” Hochfeld continues. “It sounds very reasonable, but the problem with it, no matter what the final bill looks like, is that it will continue to allow private medical insurance companies to dictate America’s public health policies. And that’s just plain wrong.”

    Thanks, Jimstaro, for posting this. All people of good will need to mobilize against this ongoing tragic perversion of our health care system.  We must say “No!”, “Stop!” — before we end up with something much worse than what we currently have, and to which we will be locked in for years and years to come.

    It is the people who are going to be stuck with the bill once again, while the Insurance & Pharmaceuticals are being set up for ungodly profit much the same as were the  banks in the mortgage fiasco.  If we don’t watch out we’re going to end up with Fannie-Med amd Freddie-Med — smiling gleefully and taking our cash and anything else they can get.


           MEDICARE FOR ALL!!!!!
