Health Care rally set for Dec. 12

On Saturday, Dec. 12, health insurance reform advocates across Washington will rally at nine separate locations to urge the Senate to join the House by passing historic health reform legislation before they take their holiday recess.

In Bremerton, activists will gather at Harborside Fountain Park next to the Kitsap Conference Center.

The statewide action has been organized by Health Care for America NOW! and the Healthy Washington Coalition. These two organizations comprise hundreds of groups representing small businesses, labor unions, health care providers and community organizations from across the state who are working to secure quality affordable health care.

The rallies are designed to shore up Senate support in an effort to pass reform that will help solve the challenges people face from rising health care costs and a lack of adequate health insurance – from families that incur budget-breaking debt because of limited health care coverage to the uninsured who go without needed medication.

The event will start at 10:30 a.m. and everyone is invited to attend.
