We know that the recession is having a deep impact on our healthcare. We know that 60% of bankruptcies are due to medical debt and that’s for most people who had insurance at the time of illness. An estimated 14,000 people a day are falling off the roles of insurance.

In addition, public hospitals are closing.

People are experiencing true suffering. We want to make sure that Members of Congress hear from the people who need single-payer the most.
