10/8 rally in Lynn in support of Mass. payment reform

Health Care For All has been working hard to rally support for payment reform in Massachusetts. From the Lynn Item:

LYNN – Two local organizations, the Lynn Health Task Force and Health Care for
All, teamed up Thursday to take the pulse of the city and to try and pinpoint
what exactly residents want in terms of health care.

“We wanted a sense  of what the needs of the community are,” said Leslie Greenberg, chairman of the
Lynn Health Task Force (LHTF). “We’ll also ask people to do a few things. We’ll
ask them to work with us.”
