As the discussion on health care moves forward, its important to participate in the process, and not to leave it to the big business interests to define what kind of health care system reforms are enacted. Please take a moment to call Senator Bayh and let him know you stand with the thousands who have expressed support nationally for HR676 - the National Health Care System, also known as Medicare for All. The senate version of this bill is called S. 703.
Senator Bayh can be contacted at:
1650 Market Tower
10 West Market Street
Indianapolis, IN 46204
131 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
Contact information for the Senator's other regional area addresses are available here.
Background information on this issue is available from Hoosiers for a Commonsense Health Plan and Physicians for a National Health Program.
Tell Senator Bayh that single-payer health reform is the only practicable way to achieve his stated goal of universal, comprehensive coverage at an affordable price.
Only single payer, by redirecting the vast sums wasted annually on bureaucracy and paperwork back into care, can assure high-quality coverage for everyone with no net increase in U.S. health spending. Only single payer can rein in costs.
Lesser reforms, with or without a “public option,” won’t fix our broken system.
