Fattah Advocates D.C. 'March for Healthcare' By the Supporters of Reform with Public Option
Date:8/20/2009

WASHINGTON,, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) plans to introduce a resolution in support of a national "March for Healthcare" in Washington on September 13 to mobilize the supporters of real healthcare reform with the public option, Fattah announced today.

The Philadelphia Congressman, a strong advocate for comprehensive healthcare reform, said he is calling on colleagues in Congress to endorse the proposal for a march, which was suggested this week by former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich to coincide with Grandparents Day.

Fattah said his concurrent resolution, to be introduced when the House convenes September 8, would authorize use of the Capitol grounds for the march.

"The confusion, misinformation and scare tactics about a 'public option' trumpeted by the opponents of real healthcare reform have dominated the national debate long enough," Fattah said. "It is way past time for the vast majority favoring healthcare reform with the public option to show up and speak up at the Capitol's doorstep and make their views known to their elected representatives."

Fattah continued, "Robert Reich is to be commended for his leadership on this proposal for a Grandparents Day march. What better time and place to refute these false claims about how President Obama's healthcare reform would threaten older Americans.

"Congress and the nation need a wakeup call on the truth about the President's reform program, which would extend coverage to 47 million uninsured Americans, cover preexisting conditions and protect tens of millions more who are underinsured or face potential loss of the coverage they have," Fattah said. "It's time for a healthy conversation about healthcare."
