Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Amazing Change on Our Horizon? HR 676

We don't hear about this stuff on the news. Why not? Do they not want us to know?

Fortunately, with the help of a wonderful listserve from the MNUHCC (Minnesota Universal Health Care Coalition), I have heard about this.

This is a real bill in our very real Congress.

Now would be a good time to call your Representative to tell them just exactly how much you support this bill. Even better, after you call, write them a letter.

After you finish all that, go back here and read everything there is to read about this bill. While you are at it, use the power of google, and search HR 676 and see what you get.

Knowledge is power.

Wow. Thanks for posting this! It sounds...reasonable. It is very strange that no one has mentioned this in the news. I guess perhaps they are expecting it to die a quick death before anyone gets what it's really about?
