Your Help is Essential! -Heathcare Reform-

Obama has said he would keep an open mind on health-care solutions. Yet when asked on March 5 about why he was against single-payer medicine, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs replied: “The president doesn’t believe that’s the best way to achieve the goal of cutting costs and increasing access.”  Do you need to ask why?  Could it be influence peddling?

Your help is essential!  These are your elected representatives!  They do not work for the health insurance or pharma industries, they work for you.  Tell them so!  Tell them you support Single Payer/HR676 – You might also tell them you support term limits, and they need to do what they were “elected” to do!
