Citizens for Tax Justice, SEIU and USAction to discuss how to raise the revenue we need to pay for health care reform we deserve

Citizens for Tax Justice, SEIU and USAction will hold a press conference at 11 a.m. Tuesday, July 7 to release a new report that lays out options for paying for quality, affordable health care reform that includes a public health insurance option.

The report, scheduled for release Tuesday by Citizens for Tax Justice, discusses reforming the Medicare tax and limiting itemized deductions for the wealthiest Americans. The report includes comprehensive, state-by-state information on the limited impact of these proposals on the U.S. population. Over the next two weeks, press events will be held in several dozen states throughout the U.S. to teach constituents and members of Congress that these two revenue options would have a negligible impact on the overwhelming majority of Americans. Reporters can view an embargoed copy of the report here:

Who: Alan Charney, Program Director, USAction
