HR676 would provide healthcare through an improved and expanded Medicare model for all with no co-pays, no deductibles, no premiums and no interference in the healthcare professionals’ relationship with patients – no insurance company involvement in clinical decisions.  HR676 is a publicly funded, privately delivered healthcare reform plan that would give patients the choice of doctors and providers that many do not have under private, for-profit plans.

Of Interest:  “I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country…corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

This was written November 21, 1864, by President Lincoln
