Medicare is the Solution… Not the Problem!

Come help celebrate Medicare's 46th birthday by demonstrating your support. Join PDA Tucson for this important event.

WHEN: Saturday July 30
WHERE: NE Corner of Speedway and Campbell in Tucson
TIME: 10 am to noon

Medicare is a the nation’s most popular social program. It has been working to provide those 65 and over, those with disabilities and certain medical conditions, with access to comprehensive healthcare without fear of bankruptcy.

Despite years of success, opponents to making healthcare a public good are seeking to privatize and cut Medicare, along with Medicaid and Social Security. In fact, these three social safety net programs have become political targets during the current battle over the nation's debt and deficit.

We need you to join us and stand up for the right to healthcare.

Bring hat, water, signs, and your feelings about Medicare.

Thanks to Ann Rose Dichov, Co-Coordinator of PDAs Medicare for All Issue Organizing Team for organizing this action.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
