Tell Congress We Want Single Payer Health Care
We congratulate President Obama and Congressional Democrats for passing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to start the difficult process of reviving our economy.
Sadly, Republicans are taking their marching orders from Rush Limbaugh, who declared "I hope [Obama] fails." Just three Republicans supported the recovery bill; the rest want big tax cuts for the rich.
It's time for Democrats to enact the big changes that Americans voted for, and ignore Republican obstructionism.
The first big change should be Single Payer Health Care .
The latest poll shows Americans prefer government health insurance to private insurance by 59%-32%. That's because private insurance has failed.
There are nearly 50 million US citizens with no health coverage at all, and at least 18,000 of them die unnecessarily each year as a result. Millions more have inadequate insurance coverage.
Rep. John Conyers is leading the fight for Single Payer Health Care with H.R. 676, the "Medicare For All" Bill . Democrats.com is joining the Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care (LCGHC) to support H.R. 676.
Please urge your Representatives and Senators to support H.R. 676:
