PDA’S Carpenter to Talk Single Payer at Fighting Bob Fest
BARABOO, Wis. - September 9 - PDA national director Tim Carpenter will join Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Dr. Gene Farley for a panel discussion on healthcare reform at Wisconsin's annual progressive gathering, Fighting Bob Fest.
This year's Fighting Bob Fest will be held Saturday, Sept. 12, at the Sauk County Fairgrounds in Baraboo, WI, near Madison.
"The struggle for quality, affordable, accessible healthcare for all is not lost and is not over," said Fighting Bob Fest organizer Karen Rybold-Chin. "Healthcare reform has been part of Bob Fest since 2002, so it only makes sense that we would keep the fire burning now that the issue is front and center on the national stage. This session will focus on what we can do to help progressive healthcare reform advocates in Congress do what the overwhelming majority of Americans want them to do: reform our corrupt system and help people live better, longer, healthier lives."
"We are delighted to be able to continue our inside/outside strategy of working in Congress and at the grassroots by joining Sen. Sanders and the great folks at Fighting Bob Fest for this important discussion," said Carpenter. "The more people outside Washington see of the single-payer option, the more they like it. A few inside the Beltway, like Sen. Sanders, get it also. What we have to do now as activists is get a message to the rest of the political leadership in Washington."
