A series of protesters demanding single-payer health care coverage disrupted a Senate Finance Committee roundtable on health care reform today.
At the beginning of the hearing this morning, a man stood and yelled, "So let me get this straight -- you have 15 seats at the table and not one for single payer? Why is that?"
"Other methods of communication with elected officials have failed in delivering the demand for single-payer national health care as evidenced by the exclusion of single-payer advocates from official hearings on health reform," said a release about the event.
