Time to Start from Scratch
We’ve heard President Obama assert during his campaign that if he were starting from scratch he would implement a single-payer plan. He recently stated: "I want to cover everybody. Now, the truth is unless you have what's called a single-payer system in which everyone's automatically covered, you're probably not going to reach every single individual." In addition, President Obama knows that we have to get the spiraling health care costs under control.
The current bills before the House and Senate can neither cover everyone nor make health care affordable. Only Improved Medicare for All, a national single payer plan such as HR 676, can do the job.
Send the message to President Obama now, “It’s time to start from scratch. The people want real change – Better Medicare for Everyone. Single-payer universal health care is the only way to get our health, our jobs, and our economy back on track.”
