Jody posted this in the March thread, but I wanted it to stand alone so everyone could read it.
Positively stimulating/refreshing!

In light of some of the wonderful slogans presented here by Andy and others in response to Lisa's call for a march on Washington- - - While details of a date must be worked out- This year for those who cannot wait, next Spring to coincide with all the presidential primaries nationwide, next Summer when young people are out of school or next Autumn just before the elections, that must be decided...The enthusiasm of Tim (Moffie) and so many others is heartening and crucial as well...Count me in !!!

An idea I thought would be one that might even make the most loyal, patriotic, flag-waving Americans proud (especially if they have been put out of work recently or for quite a while now and have no health care) is a RED, WHITE and BLUE health care card for ALL Americans...The red would be for doctor visits, the white for pharmaceutical coverage as well as dental and optical and the blue specifically for hospitalization...Everyone would get a card and have a PIN number which they could change by phone or internet in the event of loss of such card.  The logistics of how already insured working Americans would be part of it still would have to be worked out but it could be a style similar to Canada's and Europe's so NO American would ever be without, have to live in desparate fear of illness or go broke from limits on insurance coverage, being turned down for care or a prolonged illness not covered entirely by the board of directors of care providers and insurance companies.
I would inform my union shop steward when the details were worked out- I am a member of CWA- Communications Workers of America and some co-workers are in DC37- a major union and political force.

Keep on truckin'
