Support The Kucinich Amendment for Single Payer Health Care

I spoke with Congressman Kucinich briefly today while filling in for Thom Hartmann about this amendment. I'll post the audio in the morning...

I'm now on the air at Air America, so please read the following from and take action.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich proposed a crucial amendment today for single-payer healthcare and we urgently need you to call one or more of the 26 Democrats on the House Education and Labor Committee. Our message is simple:

Please support Rep. Kucinich's Amendment today in the HELP Committee to let states create single-payer healthcare systems. The federal government should give states the freedom to fix our health care crisis.

You can call any time and leave a voicemail if no one answers. If you do speak with a staffer, please post their reply here:

You can also urge your Senators and Representatives to support the Single Payer Health Plan (H.R. 676) by signing our petition:
