Most people, when they arrive in Washington, D.C., see it for what it is – a cesspool of corruption.

Two reasonable reactions to the cesspool.  One, run away screaming in fear.  Two, stay and fight back and bring to justice those who have corrupted our democracy.  Unfortunately, many choose a third way – stay and be transformed.  Instead of seeing a cesspool, they begin seeing a hot tub.

The result – profits and wealth for the corporate elite – death, disease and destruction for the American people.  Nowhere does this corrupt, calculating transformation do more damage than in the area of health care.

The Top Ten Enemies of Single Payer (listed here in alphabetical order):
American Association of Retired Persons (AARP)
America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP).
American Medical Association
Barack Obama
Business Roundtable
Families USA
Health Care for America Now
Kaiser Family Foundation
The Lewin Group
Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association of America (PHRMA)

When the new corrupt Health plan is revealed  –  It will be sold to you as the long-awaited health reform the nation has needed so badly.  But nothing about it will resemble a National Healthcare Plan. Not one part of it will resemble the effectiveness or efficiency of the Single Payer Bills that have been proposed.   Are you going to let that happen?   Please Do Something Now!  Call your representative’s and demand their support for HR676, a Single Payer plan.  (LINK)
