Jim McDermott on Single payer: "It's in our face. We can't avoid it"
This past Sunday, Representative Jim McDermott (D-WA) looked into our future and saw a single-payer health care system in it!
It's in our face," McDermott told a university healthcare group in a speech, according to the Monterey County Herald. "We can't avoid it. That's why something is going to happen."
"There will be a campaign to support this from the grass roots. You need to place pressure on your congressman," he said. "They will react to people asking them, why don't you do something? There's no question people can make a real impact."
All of us faxing and calling Pelosi and others for the past few days are living proof of this.
Jim McDermott (whose name has appeared on Corrente before this) is a true single-payer hero.
