Salem Collects 1 Million Signatures For Health Care Petition
August 4, 2009 at 10:17 AM (PT)
SALEM RADIO NETWORK and the NATIONAL CENTER FOR POLICY ANALYSIS have gathered over 1 million signatures on their "Free Our Health Care Now" petition calling on Congress to stop the nationalization of the American health care system. The petition is meant to counter President OBAMA and the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE's own million-signature "Organizing for AMERICA" health care petition.
SALEM launched its petition drive on MAY 25th and promoted it on all of its shows, including those hosted by MIKE GALLAGHER, BILL BENNETT, JANET PARSHALL, HUGH HEWITT, MICHAEL MEDVED and DENNIS PRAGER.
"This is and continues to be an amazing response from a large segment of the American people," said SRN Pres. GREG ANDERSON. "Talk radio is at the epicenter of public opinion and citizens from all across the country are making their concerns known loud and clear."
The Free Our Health Care Now petition will be delivered to Congress in late AUGUST.
