See attached from Don McCanne, a daily columnist for Physicians for a National Health Program. And note his call to "Occupy Congress" at the end.
I forward this for several reasons:
1) Because of the presence of the sister from WalMart in NYC.
2) Because his call for single-payer to eliminate such atrocities as WalMart's no-healthcare plan fits with the work of the OWS healthcare group.
3) Because he also notes the perennial place of the Walton family atop the richest people in the US lists. This is more evidence of the shortsightedness of those who think that ONLY bank capital is significant in our exploitation. (In fact WalMart is so financially powerful it has tried to start its own bank.)
