Millions call on Congress to act: it's time for health care reform

Last Wednesday, people across the country sent over one million messages to Congress urging them to finish the job and pass real health care reform.

Five hundred people physically assembled to greet Melanie's March - a group of health insurance company abuse survivors who marched for eight days and 135 miles from Philadelphia, PA to DC in honor of Melanie Shouse, an Obama volunteer and health care activist who died because she didn't have affordable health care and access to the care she needed to detect and treat her breast cancer - at Union Station and walked the last leg together to Capitol Hill.

UFCW members were there along the way to show their support. Local 1776's John Meyerson commended the marchers and lent his voice to the call for health care reform now (see video).
