There has been a flurry of activity on the PUSH: Pennsylvanians United for Single Payer Healthcare since my last update with a variety of posts by new bloggers Trenita Finley, Chris Singh, Neal Caldwell, MaryPat Donegan, Theresa Chalich, and Lloyd Stires

Trenita Finley has written to promote her fundraiser for PUSH here:

Lloyd Stires and Chris Singh have written on the Supreme Court deliberations on the Affordable Care Act at:

and

Neal Caldwell has written a poignant essay on his experiences volunteering at the PUSH office at:

Theresa Chalich wrote a powerful letter to the editor in the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette which was reprinted on the PUSH blog at:

Finally director MaryPat Donegan has written a couple of important posts on a fundraising appeal for PUSH at:

IF the PUSH/HEALTHCARE4ALLPA SW OFFICE IS A KEEPER, IT'S UP TO YOU!

Plus she has written a request for proposals for an Economic Impact Study to show the cost effectiveness at:

Request for Proposals for EIS on PA Single Payer
