( – promoted by OKWatchdog)
OKWatchdog and several other groups (www.okhealthcarereform.com) have a health insurance reform rally planned at the Capitol on April 21 at 12:30 p.m. We’ll either be on the South Plaza or inside on the stairs near the Lieutenant Governor’s office, depending on the weather.
We announced the rally today at a press conference at the Capitol. You should see it on TV tonight or read about it tomorrow.
Sen. Kenneth Corn and Rep. Eric Proctor talked about a health insurance reform legislative agenda and promoted the rally. I talked about lack of health insurance industry accountability, as did the other speakers.
The rally will go for no longer than an hour (likely less) and will consist of nonprofits, patients, health care providers, small business owners and others talking about health insurance industry practices and telling their stories.
Our message is that we need to protect Oklahomans from abuses and take back the Legislature from the insurance lobby.
Obviously we need as many people to attend as possible. If you can stop by for a few minutes, it will make a huge difference in terms of public perception and media coverage.
I’ll post a speaker list as soon as it’s finalized.
Please consider attending. It’s worthwhile and will get people’s attention.
Our priorities are to:
