Stand With Marcy Winograd For The State Single Payer Option
- From: The Pen activist.thepen@...We Must Speak Out Louder Than Ever For A State Single Payer Option
Now that a filibuster in the Senate is no longer an issue, for better
or worse, some kind of health care bill is likely to pass and be
signed into law. And the worse is awful downright bad, threatening to
force us to become customers of corporate medical insurance, with no
meaningful alternative. And that is why the fight to protect the
right of states to deploy their own single payer systems is more
critical than ever.
Marcy Winograd is standing strong on this issue and has her own
action page you can submit to make your voice heard on this right
State Single Payer Action:
And Marcy has a new TV ad you can see on this page, that she is
working to get on the air right now.
State Single Payer Video:
Here is what Marcy Winograd herself has to say on the issue.
"Regardless of what Congress passes in the way of health insurance
reform, states should have the right to to set up a publicly-funded
privately-delivered health care system, without interference from
health insurance companies that do not provide any health care.
Unfortunately Congress has yet to include the Kucinich amendment,
which PASSED in its own committee by an overwhelming 27-12 margin,
and which protects states' rights to enact single-payer, into the
health insurance reform bill.
This is wrong.
There is also a similar amendment being sponsored by Senator Sanders
as well. We must have an amendment in the final bill that gives
states the freedom to choose single-payer, the most efficient and
economical health care plan of all."
So please submit Marcy's action page above, and also consider making
a contribution to this brave progressive candidate, who is working so
hard to replace Jane Harman in CA-36, and came close to doing so one
time already. Because whatever you can contribute will help Marcy to
get this new TV ad on this issue on the air in her district.
If you can make a contribution to get this ad on the air in Marcy's
district, where we have a real chance to get a true progressive into
Congress, this will be one of the most critical fights in the next
upcoming election cycle. But even if you can't make a contribution
right now, please submit Marcy's action page to demand an amendment
for a state single payer option.
