Bad Healthcare Reform Must be Stopped!

Urgent Action is Needed!  – The Senate is proposing a health-care reform plan that will mandate health insurance coverage for every person in the United States. Individual mandates are bad policy because they subsidize the private health insurance industry, enriching CEOs and corporations. It does not insure more people, and it will likely worsen the more inhumane aspects of our current health-care system.

You need to tell your elected officials to support national, single-payer health-care instead. If you’re interested in helping please tell your congressperson you want single-payer health-care (HR 676).  If you don’t know enough about single-payer (HR 676) please go to any of these sites to learn more!  Physicians for a National Health Plan, Healthcare-Now, or the California Nurses Assoc.  If you would like to see which representative’s are currently co-sponsoring HR 676, CLICK HERE.   Want to see what labor unions are supporting HR 676, CLICK HERE.

In addition to contacting your representative’s, please also tell Ted Kennedy & Tom Daschle they need to also support HR 676!  Please don’t put this off!  It takes less than 15 minutes of your time and most of all, it won’t happen without your help!
