Come on People Support This!
At last night’s press conference on healthcare, President Obama shocked the media with a very inconvenient truth:
“I want to cover everybody. Now, the truth is that, unless you have a single-payer system, in which everybody is automatically covered, then you’re probably not going to reach every single individual.”
So why won’t our elected Democrats in Washington fight for a single-payer system that will cover everyone? Especially when it’s the only system that will actually save money by eliminating 30% in utterly wasted overhead from greedy insurance giants?
The battle over single-payer is in the House Energy&Commerce Committee (E&C). The committee was supposed to vote on Rep. Anthony Weiner’s single-payer amendment on Monday, but chairman Henry Waxman keeps postponing the vote because it might pass – just like the Kucinich Amendment for a single-payer state option passed on July 17 by a shocking 25-19 bi-partisan majority.
Today we’re told the vote could be tomorrow ( Friday ). This week we asked our 600,000 supporters to call all 35 Democrats. Based on your calls, we identified 7 solid yes and 6 more lean yes:
Can you call the 6 lean yes and convince them to become solid yes on Rep. Anthony Weiner’s single-payer amendment in the Energy & Commerce Committee?
Won’t Say / “Not Enought Votes”
In addition, these 15 Democrats won’t say whether they support single-payer, or claim there aren’t enough votes for it to pass. But if they all vote for it, it will pass! See if you can convince them.
Also, be sure to send our Single Payer petition to your Representatives, and forward it to everyone you know who needs and deserves better healthcare:
Thanks for all you do!
