A Conspiracy of Silence Against Single Payer – Do Something!

Rose Ann DeMoro:   There’s a Conspiracy of Silence Against Single Payer!
June 4, 2009 by Healthcare-NOW!

Rose Ann DeMoro is the executive director of the California Nurses Association and a National V.P. of the AFL-CIO. On June 3, 2009, she spoke at a Capitol Hill press conference called by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), on the issue of a Single Payer Healthcare System.

Ms. DeMoro said: “There is a conspiracy of silence” against Single Payer in the Congress. “We’re going to have to turn up the heat” if we want to get anything done. She added that Single Payer “has been kept off the agenda” and that there was a lack of “political will” in the Congress about doing the right thing with respect to the current crisis in health care. The press conference took place in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. The healthcare activists are supporting HR 676 and S 703, now pending before the Congress.


Keep the Preasure On  – ASAP – Call, write, fax or e-mail all your representatives and tell them they need to support Single Payer  HR676.    LINK

Now Call or Fax  Senator Max Baucus and tell him that SINGLE PAYER is indeed on the table &  let him know how much you “don’t respect” his performance!   And, he is representing the country, NOT  the health insurance & pharma industry in Healthcare reform!  Phone: (202) 224-2651 (Office)   //  (202) 224-9412 (Fax)

And one moreCall President Obama at the White House (202-456-1414 or  202- 456-1111) and tell him what a mess Senator Max Baucus is making, arresting Doctors and Nurses…  then remind him he said, “everyone would have a seat at the table”, tell him Single Payer is not for later, the time is NOW!
