Nurses Across Nation Host SiCKO House Parties to Urge Guaranteed Healthcare as DVD Released
Date:11/5/2007

OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Moore's healthcare "horror" film SiCKO will continue its unique impact on American society and politics with its Nov. 6 DVD release, which will be commemorated with more than 125 nurse-led house parties around the nation, the Registered Nurse Response Network (RNRN) reports today. Call for information about house parties in your area.

The house parties, stretching from Alabama to Idaho, build on the "Scrubs for SiCKO" campaign during the movie's summer debut which saw over 10,000 nurse volunteers gathering outside theaters and talking to the public about achieving genuine healthcare reform.

The goal of the house parties is to build support for the kind of guaranteed, single-payer healthcare systems that are succeeding in every other industrialized democracy -- a point Moore makes powerfully in the movie. Nurses will strategize about how to use patient advocacy to help pass single-payer/Medicare-for-all-type legislation such as Rep. John Conyers' HR 676 now pending in Congress, and make it a central focus of the presidential campaign.

Nurses are crucial to the public education campaign about how single-payer healthcare, guaranteeing comprehensive, quality healthcare with an expanded and improved Medicare for all, is far superior to the profit-driven, industry-centered healthcare sector that has come to dominate American medicine.

"SiCKO" profiles a number of Americans with insurance who have been denied needed care by their insurance companies, describes how the insurance-based healthcare system is structured to keep it that way, and provides examples of other industrialized nations where insurance companies do not stand in the way of medical care.

HR 676 and similar bills in several state legislatures would have one public entity collecting and disbursing all revenues for care delivered by our current, mostly private hospitals, clinics, and doctors, similar to how Medicare works.'/>"/>
