Health Reform Supporters Pack Bernie’s Peacham Town Meeting

Around 600 people – a strong majority of them supporters of health care reform – joined Sen. Bernie Sanders in Peacham’s Congregational church yesterday for a town meeting, reportedly one of the largest Northeast Kingdom political meetings in recent years.
VPIRG has been working at the federal level for quality, affordable heath care for everyone, as well as the choice of a public health insurance plan. The Senator is clearly on our side – and so was this group. When Senator Sanders declared that “single payer is, unfortunately, not in the House bill this year, but a public plan is,” the crowd (both inside and out) responded with loud cheers.
Thank you to everyone who came out to Peacham! Weren’t able to make it? It’s not too late to be heard…
