It's Almost SiCKO Day!

It's almost SiCKO Day in California!  Tomorrow, June 12, Michael Moore storms the California Capitol along with 1,000 nurses for the first public screening on his new horror film, er, documentary SiCKO.  

This is the first big public event for the movie, and will feature the annoucnement of the "Scrubs for SiCKO" campaign by the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee which will ensure at least one nurse or doctor is in every opening night showing of the film.

This movie is a tremendous opportunity to push the untrustworthy insurance corporations out of the delivery of healthcare--and to support politicians dedicated to increasing healthcare NOT increasing private insurance.  This is a crucial step towards guaranteeing healthcare on the single-payer model.

Fortunately the press is on it; let's take a look below.

Gunning for those Darn Nurses--Guaranteed Healthcare Update

The day after America's nursing movement announced its plans to use the tragedy and horror of SiCKO to spur people to action, the attacks are already beginning.

Fortunately, for you, me, and most people the attacks are best described as unintentionally hilarious.  What moviemaker doesn't want crazy anti-patient Web sites pumping our press releases about their product?

3,000 Patient Advocates for SiCKO & America

Bring your red scrubs to SiCKO's opening night and help the nurses turn this movie masterpiece into a social movement--this pop culture into political change.

The California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee is acting as co-host of the opening night of SiCKO at 3,000 theaters around the country.  We are working with an unprecedented national coalition of nurse and doctor and health care activist groups to ensure SiCKO has a long-term impact on our nation's healthcare system and politics. It's an incredible opportunity for patient advocates and it's only missing one element: you.  What are you doing the evening of Friday June 29th?

Hillary Clinton Also Needs to See SiCKO

The political terrain is shifting underneath the "Big 3" Democratic presidential candidates as they take baby steps on the nation's most urgent domestic issue: healthcare.  

While their campaigns try to negotiate with the toxic health insurance sector, in the hopes of making them slightly less dangerous to patients, public dislike of these bad actors is about to be crystallized by Michael Moore's powerful new film SiCKO.  Like Edwards and Obama before her, Hillary Clinton needs to score some tickets.  It's not too late for any of the three of them to change course on their healthcare proposals.  Maybe they'll come to one of the opening night screenings you host--see the bottom of this post.
