Green Party Alert: Bring Medicare for All Back to the Table

***ACTION ALERT for Single Payer***

Write Your Representative Today!

It’s time to take action for SINGLE-PAYER NATIONAL HEALTH CARE!

The media are focusing on the debate between Democrats promoting Obamacare and ‘Tea Party’ activists who are determined to block any health care reform at all.  Whether Obamacare gets passed in Congress or Republicans succeed in defeating reform legislation, the for-profit health insurance companies will win and the rest of us will lose.

These are the worst economic times since the Great Depression and we need healthcare that is cost-effective for ALL.  Single-Payer will reduce health care costs by as much as a third and reduce ‘rationing’ — no more for-profit insurance company overhead, administrative costs, and skyrocketing CEO salaries.  Single-Payer will allow everyone to choose their physicians and hospitals, and no American will ever again face financial ruin over an illness or injury.

Tell your legislators that Single Payer makes economic sense and business sense.   Here are simple talking points you can use in messages to your congresspersons.

  • Single-payer will boost the ailing US economy and provide relief for businesses large and small, because it will cancel the high expense and administrative burden of employer-based health care.
  • At 3% administrative costs, Medicare (which would become universal under single payer) is very efficient compared to the 15-30% administrative costs of for-profit insurance.
  • Single-payer will relieve cities, towns and school boards from having to bear the cost of providing health insurance to employees, allowing responsible officials to reduce their budgets and lower local property taxes.
  • Single-payer gives government and citizens a stake in preventive medicine and promotion of good health habits to keep costs down.

Don’t let Democratic and Republican politicians destroy hope for real health care reform.  Don’t be fooled: Obamacare won’t provide health care for all Americans.  It will drive up heatlh care costs and impose ‘mandates’ that result in multi-million-dollar taxpayer-funded subsidies to insurance companies.  Obamacare is not the solution.  The only real solution to America’s health care crisis is Single-Payer.  Please write your representative and tell them we need Medicare for All.
