Hundreds march in Oakland for “Medicare for all”
By Tim Redmond
JULY 30, 2015 — Hundreds of people filled Frank Ogawa Plaza in Oakland today as part of what will be a growing campaign to bring single-payer healthcare to California.
It was billed as a 50th birthday celebration for Medicare, but it was also a pep rally for a move to get the private insurance companies out of the health-care business.
The weather was perfect, the crowd was festive .. and the momentum has begun.
