Attention Health Justice: UR DOING IT WRONG!
I just got an email from Health Justice complaining that faxes in support of single payer were being thrown out. Yeah. No kidding.
People think that big lobbyists keep winning because they have the $. Well, that is only part of the reason. Another reason is that they are respectful of the ways of capitol hill. When they contact their clients they make sure that everyone contacts THEIR representative. If you are from Montana Baucus is interested in you, otherwise you need a gazzillion dollars. That is just the way it is.
Of course, Health Justice could collect emails by state and send out its notices sorted by state with the right contact info for senators from those states, but Health Justice can't be bothered.
If we are going to win, we need to be smart.
I hope everyone will participate in the May 30th National Day of Action near them.
Please contact your representative, state and federal, and tell them you want single payer. Then write a letter to the editor. When you have done those things you can relax in the knowledge that you have done the basics to win single payer.
