Don't let them marginalize single payer!
First of all, notice what is missing from this article, the words, HR 676, 93 cosponsors and saves $350 BILLION dollars a year. Every advocate for single payer needs to get those concepts across in every interview. This isn't some pie-in-the-sky idea, this is a specific piece of legislation that has more cosponsors than any other.
Congressman Wally Herger, R-Chico, said in a phone interview from Washington that single payer has gotten lots of discussion in the House but that no plan has materialized.
Herger represents California's second district, if you live in his district, please contact him and tell him there is a specific plan for Medicare for All and that 93 of his fellow House members support it. If you live in the district, please send the links.
Kathleen Stoll, deputy executive director of Families USA, which advocates for consumers, told the E-R her group believes health care will be a top priority for Obama. However, she said, "single payer isn't even on the table."
Please politely remind Stoll that Medicare for All has more cosponsors than any other proposed health care legislation. Don't let them marginalize single payer.
