Support single-payer

 

H.R. 676 has been reintroduced:  Single payer, quality, national healthcare!

This is your chance to help make history!  What you do right now will make a huge difference? How can we really get to a quality national healthcare system now, this time around?   

Step One:  We have a great bill, H.R. 676, that covers our medical needs without continuing to support insurance companies.  Improved and enhanced Medicare for All that will save about one third of every dollar we have been spending.

Step Two: We already have 45 Co-sponsors.  Three are not yet listed in the official list below.

Step Three:  We need YOU — every one of you – yes YOU – to be in touch with your Congress Member today –by the end of January to be sure that he or she signs onto this bill, H.R. 676, and understands that you are committed to seeing it passed.  Visit your Congress Member when he/she comes home; take a delegation with you; call your Member at work 1-866-338-1015 on our toll free number.  Do it now.  And send them letters from our website www.healthcare-now.org.  under “Campaign Tools” and “Write Congress”  Or take a big batch of postcards and hand deliver them to his/her office. 

 Don’t wait for someone else to do this.  You don’t want to miss out on this chance to make history.

If you send an email to Healthcare-NOW ( info@healthcare-now.org)  letting us know that your Congress member is on board, we’ll send you a free 7 minute DVD of John Conyers talking about how we can win.  Just let us know.  1-800-453-1305.

Now the next part gets tricky.  But it is really easier.  If your Congress Member is already listed here, then you only have to call to remind him/her that you are supporting the bill and you need him/her to be sure it gets passed.  It is also important to write to Congressman Charles Rangel, and call on him to hold hearings on H.R. 676 during April or as soon as possible.  His fax is 202-225-0816.  His phone is 202-225-4365.  He has already signed onto the bill, so be sure to thank him. 

Tell them all that we are sick and tired of waiting for healthcare in this country.

 We want it NOW.

WAY MORE SPONSORS Our bill already has a lot more co-sponsors than any other healthcare bill in the House.  The pundits and the nay-sayers are still saying it is not possible, just too hard – but they haven’t taken into account the broad and growing movement for a national single payer healthcare plan that says “Yes, we can win this. We can do it together.” 

Here’s a really important point. Since the Congress has passed the Pay/Go measure mandating  no deficit spending, our bill, H.R. 676, is the only one that can pass muster because it pays for itself.   Pay as we go.  Single payer is the only way.

y the way, if you want to read the bill, H.R. 676, just go to Thomas.gov, click in Conyers name and scroll down to 676:
