Dear Single-Payer Supporter:
On April 15th, the Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care is launching a nationwide call-in day for single-payer national health care. Our message is clear: “Tax payer dollars should go to people, not profits. Support single-payer national health care now.”
Lesser reform proposals will have our taxes subsidizing insurance company profits, not paying for real health care. We must fix our health care system by putting everybody in, and removing for-profit interests that are responsible for the sky-rocketing cost of health care. The only plan that meets these criteria is a single-payer national health care system.
So on April 15th, 2009, we ask that you join with thousands of others to call Congress, to support single-payer legislation in both the House (HR 676) and the Senate (S703).
If you don’t know your Congresspersons, or want a script, all of the information you need is on our National Call-In Day page – http://www.healthcare-now.org/campaigns/call/
If you know your Representative and Senators, the Capitol Switchboard number is 866-338-1015*. Ask to be connected, and then ask him or her to support HR 676 or S703. If they are already a co-sponsor, thank them.
The injustice in our healthcare system must end. If our Congress is serious about health reform, they will support single-payer health care now.
Health and Justice,
Assistant National Coordinator, Healthcare-NOW!
