Universal health care bill is in congress!
Don’t let Barack Obama and the Democratic Party’s congressional leadership pacify you with some sort of minor health care reform. There is a bill that has been introduced in the House worth passing, but it’s not going to pass. I’m referring to House Resolution 676: “United States National Health Care Act or the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act” introduced on January 26, 2009. Don’t expect it to go anywhere though. It’s for single payer health care. Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader supports this legislation, and recently wrote that single payer health care would provide “free choice of doctors and hospitals. No more premiums, deductibles, exclusions, co-pays, in-network, out-of-network rigamarole.” For more information about the bill, click on http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-676
