Metro General Rally May 21st
Public hospitals around the nation are being closed or short-changed . Metro General Hospital at Meharry is no exception.City officials are looking to continue making cuts at a hospital that serves the poor, low-income workers and those with no health insurance. At the same time they prepare to spend $500 million for a new convention center.
Health care is a basic human right. The city must find the way to keep General Hospital open. What kind of society puts on the poor mouth when it comes to public hospitals and health care for all and spends $45 billion a year on health care for dogs and cats?
On Thursday, May, 21st at 5 pm., at the Council Budget Hearing for the Hospital Authority will meet to discuss hospital funding. You need to be there with hundreds of others to demand : NO CUTS. FULL FUNDING. Stay at home and watch your health care go down the drain.
The hearing will be held at the Metro Council Chambers located on the second floor of the Metro Courthouse
