newer version of the phrase is that a liberal is a conservative who got sick.
I had the honor of emceeing a rally on City Hall's front lawn in support of Shelia Kuehl's Senate Bill 840, which would create single-payer health insurance in California.
Part of the 365-city tour in support of SB840, the rally featured speakers from the unions and activist groups that are pulling together to make universal health care a reality. There's more information at the campaign's website. Sign up and get involved.
The Los Angeles City Council has long endorsed single-payer health care for California, and I was proud to be part of sponsoring a motion to do so this year with Councilmember Richard Alarcon.
