Health Care Reform ButtonsPosted: August 14, 2009
Hello! It’s been a while. Frankly, after the election we collapsed and never wanted to see another button. However, we’ve been roused out of our post-election stupor by the health care reform debates sweeping the nation. Reform of the health care industry was one of the big reasons we got deeply involved with the campaign last year.
This is a life or death issue for many people. Seriously. There are, today in this country, people dying because they can not afford to get the medical treatment they need and deserve, often because they’ve been dropped by their insurance company for having the audacity to get sick. It is one of the biggest shames of this country. Health care is a basic human right. We all deserve it.
When the shit started hitting the fan in this health care reform debate, we felt it was high time we dive in too and have our say…in a button of course! We used supplies we had left from the campaign–thanks again to our generous donors!–and quickly designed and made these buttons to give away at our local health care reform meeting with Congressman Jim McDermott this past Wednesday.
If you’d like to make your own pro-health care reform buttons (for non-commercial use only) and have a 1.25 inch button machine, let us know and we’ll get the artwork templates to you!
Note: We made a one-off run of these buttons and do not have any more to give away. We encourage everyone to get involved and make their own. DIY rules!
