Chicago Rallies to Tell Congress: It's Time to Deliver on Health Care
Over 100 people gathered in Federal Plaza in downtown Chicago to tell Congress to finish health care right and finish it now. Despite temperatures in the single digits and a strong Lake Michigan breeze, enthusiastic leaders chanted and laughed and committed to getting the job done. HCAN leaders Reverend Larry Greenfield, William McNary (Co-Director, Citizen Action/Illinois), and David Kagan (Illinois Mainstreet Alliance) joined a representative from Senator Burris’ office and two MoveOn Illinois leaders on stage to remind the crowd why we need to keep fighting and how we will win. The crowd left the meeting with call-in numbers and letter to the editor sheets, and all made a commitment to come back next week in even greater numbers.
