Health Care

I spent the week working for Georgia PIRG.  They’re running a campaign to strengthen and pass the health care legislation before the Senate.   Working on such a zeitgeist-y issue was new to me.  I got rejected by plenty of people who didn’t want me “messing with their health care” and plenty of others who find the health care bill “socialist” and “un-American.”  Once again, I’m reminded that I’ve left New York.  On the other side, the most supportive people couldn’t help out the cause because they themselves were struggling to pay unaffordable health care bills.  But the majority of people  seemed too confused or too uninformed about the legislation to be willing to make any kind of serious contribution toward its passage.  No wonder the Dems are struggling so.  Fascinating issue to work on, though my fundraising successes were middling, at best.
