On Thursday, April 5, 2001, Deborah attended three events
concerning health care. The first was a press conference announcing the
HR 1142 by U.S. Representative John Conyers, which would extend
Medicaid coverage to most of America's uninsured. There followed a
the White House, where Deborah marched with members of the Gray
Panthers and others to protest the cuts in Medicare that would be
caused by President
Bush's proposed massive tax cuts for the rich, and also to call for
adding prescription drugs to Medicare coverage. Later that day, Deborah
press conference held by Senator Debbie Stabanow and others on Capitol
Hill on the same subject.
