Single payer: Everyone in, nobody out.

mw2w9675_stdWord is Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) may re-introduce his single-payer health care bill. Here’s more on single-payer, from the Physicians for a National Health Program.

Here‘s a link to help you find your elected representatives. When we got some kind of official word here at Hot Dogma Central, we will be encouraging you to contact them to encourage them to be a co-sponsor.

And thanks, Leftover, for the links.

    I have submitted requests for verification to Mr. Conyers’ headquarters, Michael Darner, and Healthcare-NOW! that are more recent than Mr. Conyers’ statements made on the subject at the National Labor Strategy Conference last month. (As far as I know, no timeline was included in those remarks.)

    If I hear anything, I’ll drop it in.

        Michael Darner, Legislative Director for Rep. Conyers, has replied by sending me a PDF copy of an invitation to become an original cosponsor of H.R. 676 he says Mr. Conyers has sent to the House membership. The text is the same as was contained in the Healthcare-NOW! action alert. There is no date on the letter and it does not mention any intent to reintroduce the bill to the 113th Congress. As I requested statements made after the NLSC in January, let’s assume, at our peril, the invitation was sent sometime after that. And if we’re going to assume that, I suppose it’s reasonable to assume Conyers actually has plans to reintroduce the bill…sometime…hopefully.

        Politicians.
        One day I’m going to meet one that gives me a straight answer to a simple question and I will drop over dead.

        But…you know…don’t let that stop you from contacting your Representative(s) in the House in support of Single Payer. I would think that a group so deficit and debt burden crazy would be interested in saving $350-$450 billion…every year…maybe.
