Reportback: Seattle Town Hall

Reportback: Seattle Town Hall

Linda Jansen attended the Health Care Town Hall held by newly-elected Pramila Jayapal in Seattle, WA.

She brought the banner pictured above and stood outside the town hall where she handed out over 200 flyers that had the graphics attached below. Linda reports that she was received well by the mixed-age crowd and received words of encouragement.

Rep. Jayapal is a co-sponsor of HR 676: the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. It is reported that Jayapal is only willing to be a co-sponsor at present. With education and gentle pressure, she may move over time to a position of more active support such as speaking about HR 676 in public, writing OpEds about it and recruiting other members of Congress to support it.

We want to thank Linda for taking this action on single-handed and urge others in the Seattle area to join her. Contact info@healthoverprofit.org if you are interested, and we will connect you.
