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.

Support the Minnesota Health Act!

The Minnesota Health Act (single-payer universal health care bill) needs you
at its Senate Health Committee hearing

Monday, February 18 (Presidents Day), 12:30,

State Capitol, Senate Health Committee, Room 15, below the rotunda.

We need to pack the hearing room to outnumber the 25 or more health industry
lobbyists who will be there in full force to oppose our bill.

We will wear labels saying "Minnesota Health Plan, YES We Can" to show our
greater number to Committee members and media.

Don't miss this momentous step toward single-payer universal care in our
state. Tell your friends.

Single-payer systems just make me SOOOOOO nervous. I prefer to focus my efforts on getting the FDA to allow testing on generic insulins and ways to lower the costs of stupid test strips. Good luck in your fight!
