I do NOT want the government doing ANYTHING about my health care.
The ONLY thing the government does right is the military. EVERYthing else  
they screw up . . . and that is on top of costing much more than the private  
sector could have done it for in the first place.
The LAST thing you want is socialized medicine in this country.
Oh yea, one last thing, I have it on good authority that the poor will  
always be with us.
And there are plenty of private (read religious) organizations to deal with  
that too . . . and THEY'D be better at it if some in society weren't doing  
everything they could to circumvent them also.

Join this protest movement now. Who is more deserving than us  lowly,
starving OKOM jazz musicians?


The  School of Arts and Culture of the University of the Poor is conducting  a
survey on artists/musicians/cultural workers and our experiences with  health
care.  http://www.universityofthepoor.org/schools/artists/index.htm

Just like  for many other people in this country, artists as a group
contribute a lot to  our society, but often lack some of the basic things we
need to live, like  health care. We're trying to collect some data on this,
to know a little more  about artists' experiences here. These data will be
used for a Congressional  Hearing on Artists and Health Care, sponsored by
Acts of Art, and for a Truth  Commission this summer, organized by the Poor
People's Economic Human Rights  Campaign.

The School of Arts and Culture (SOAC) of the University of the  Poor is a
group of artists/cultural workers that are part of the Poor  People's
Economic Human Rights Campaign, a group of organizations building a  movement
to end poverty, led by poor people.
