Action Alert: Today is a National Call-In Day for Single-Payer
Today is a nationwide call-in day for single-payer national healthcare. Our message is clear: “Tax payer dollars should go to people, not profits. Support single-payer national health care now.”
So today, we ask that you join with thousands of others to call Congress, to support single-payer legislation in both the House (HR 676) and the Senate (S 703).
If you don’t know your Congresspersons, or want a script, all of the information you need is on our National Call-In Day page.
If you know your Representative and Senators, the Capitol Switchboard number is 866-338-1015. Ask to be connected, and then ask him or her to support HR 676 or S 703. If they are already a co-sponsor, thank them.
I would call my congress critters if I didn’t think it was a complete waste of time. I’m from Indiana, where most congresspeople outside of Indianapolis bend over backwards to show off their moderate chops. Sen. Bayh is essentially a moderate Republican, though he is officially a Democrat. And my congressional district swings back and forth from Democrat to Republican, so I doubt that my Representative would ever support HR 676.
Neal, you should still call your Representative and tell them if they don’t support this bill, you will not vote for them in the next election..simple as that…if everyone did that, imagine how quickly we can get HR 676 passed!
Every call, letter and email counts! Every vote counts.
Please ask your Representative to support / co-sponsor HR 676, The United States National Health Insurance Act. Just since January 74 Representatives have signed on to co-sponsor the bill.
Please ask your Senators to support / co-sponsor S 703, The American Health Security Act.
E-mail your Senators and Representatives. You can easily find your elected officials’ contact information here, and easy online forms to use to email: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml
