    • On January 09, 2009, by twonursesus - Thank you for the postings on the salaries and profits of the insurance companies. They represent a LOT of health care dollars that are not going towards health care. And that doesn't include the wasteful 30% administrative costs generated by the insurance system. Financially, single payer is the only viable option for providing health care for all and for controlling costs. Please write and call your Congressperson, your Senator, Tom Daschle (proposed health care cabinet member),and President/President-elect Obama and let them know that you want them to support HR 676. Then spread the word and help educate people that single payer is NOT something to fear. For addresses/phone numbers/e-mails: www.house.gov www.senate.gov www.change.gov

    • On February 05, 2008, by firewalker50 - I just spoke with my representative's staffer that handles health care issues. After a 20 minute talk, she has said she will put the bill in front of him again. He supports health care for everyone, but feels the bill needs changes. I told her that the bill will go through a process of changes, but his "intent" to support a health care bill is as important as any changes that are made. The congressman in my district is Charlie Gonzales. Let's see how successful this hone call was.
