New Jersey Launch: Health Care For America: NOW!

Blue Jersey — Sunday, July 13, 2008

By Nick Lento

On Tuesday Health Care for America Now  launched a wonderful campaign to bring affordable health care to America.

What follows is a link to a video I took of of the launch/press conference that was hosted by Ev Liebman of NJ Citizen Action.

Apologies for the link as I was unable to successfully get blip tv's embed code to work on this site.....but you will be able to watch the whole event there.    

Thanks to Jodi Godfrey, Chair of BlueWaveNJ.org and BlueWaveNJ.org and RealBergenDems.com Health Care Committee, for inviting me along on the ride to Trenton and to Kathy Callahan (whom you'll see on the video making a strong/cogent contribution) for letting Jodi know of my interest in this issue.

This is a youtube of the excellent Channel 40 news report on the event. — PLEASE NOTE: This YouTube video may no longer be available.

More youtube video below....

I've started editing down my own low res amateur video (no wireless mic at the podium) so that the individual speakers could fit into the youtube time limitations.   Here's the first three speakers.  (Will put up the rest in the next few hours...if you're reading this on Sunday night.)
