Possible Vote on Single-Payer Health Care
I would really like to have access to health care. I want everyone to have access to health care. Our representatives, who all enjoy socialized health care at our expense, may soon have the opportunity to vote on a single-payer plan that would grant all Americans access to health care. Please nag them to vote in favor of single-payer health care so that America can join civilized nations like Canada, England, Germany, etc.

We just learned that there is a strong possibility that Speaker Pelosi
WILL allow a vote on single-payer. The vote may happen as early as
tomorrow (Friday) morning. Whether it is offered as a stand-alone bill or
as an amendment to the health care reform package, this will be the FIRST
vote ever held on single-payer health care in the full House of
Representatives.

Urge your representative NOW to stand with you and the American people on
this historic vote. Tell your representative to vote "YES!" to Rep.
Anthony Weiner's (D-N.Y.) single-payer bill! Go to

In the past, many members of Congress have said they would support
single-payer "if it came to a vote" but that a vote just wasn't
politically feasible. Now, a vote is here, and it is our job to urge
lawmakers to do the right thing. They cannot miss this historic
opportunity to cast their votes for real health care for all - a
single-payer system.

Time is short, so please click here to send a quick email to your
representative now at
http://action.citizen.org/t/6693/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=27576

Among all the reform proposals, a single-payer, Medicare-for-All system is
the only "option" for health care reform that will end the domination of
the insurance industry and ensure that every one of the more than 45
million uninsured will receive quality health care.

Let's not back down now. Continue to stand up for health care for all!

Thank you for all you do!

Sorry...

I stand on the side of Michele Bachmann and the people on the Capitol steps today. Kill the bill. Want to know why? Provide me with your email, and I will provide you with my research.
