Organizing for America is having a health insurance reform bus tour across Northern West Virginia on Thursday, Oct. 29. At each of the five stops there will be a brief rally for health care reform. Each event will be open to the press and will feature different speakers with each stop having a different theme/focus on the health care debate.
OFA is looking for more people to come forward and tell their health care stories and explain why health insurance reform is so important to West Virginians. They would appreciate any state or local elected officials (and staff) coming to an event and speaking about why health insurance reform is so important to West Virginia. Below is the schedule.
