Bernie Sanders is circulating a petition advocating Single Payer. Here’s what the good Senator has to say about it in his e-mail.
Please read it and go to his web site and show your support for Single Payer. We may have to settle for the fall-back position of a Public Option, but we should show them our true desires anyway.
A PETITION TO CONGRESS
Supporting Single-Payer Health Care
Our current private health insurance system is the most costly, wasteful, complicated and bureaucratic in the world. Today, 46 million people have no health insurance. Even more are underinsured with high deductibles and co-payments. Close to 20,000 Americans die each year because they don’t have regular access to a doctor.
The time is now for our nation to address the most profound moral and economic issue we face.
The time is now for our country to join the rest of the industrialized world and provide cost-effective, comprehensive quality health care to every man, woman and child in our country.
The time is now to take on the powerful special interests in the insurance and pharmaceutical industries and pass a single-payer national health care program.
Sign the petition
Tell Bernie your experience with health care and insurance.
