Emergency Rally for Childrens Health Care
Original post made by Elaine Elbizri, Midtown, on Oct 3, 2007
You may have heard on the news this morning that President Bush has vetoed a bill that would provide Health Care for millions of children - SCHIP. Both Democrats and Repblicans support this bill with a majority in both Houses. Rallies are being held throughout the country to protest this veto and call on congress to reverse the President's veto.
I am co-hosting a Rally to protest this Veto at Lytton Plaza, University Avenue Palo Alto. The Raging Grannies (and Grandpas) are truly raging. This is one of hundreds of demonstrations organized by MoveOn and supported by TrueMajority, and USAction. The rally will march to Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's office to give her our support and ask her to do everything she can to reverse the President's veto.
Your friends, family, neighbors, colleagues can join this protest and/or write to you congressperson to support this emergency effort to reverse the veto.
