3. The number of Senate co-sponsors of the Senate single payer bill is zero.

For those who may think I just forgot to list them.

But if you ask Senator John Kerry and other Senators if they support single payer healthcare they will insist and swear on a mountain of bibles that they do.

While they claim to support single payer, they just haven't gotten around to co-sponsor the only single payer legislation in the Senate.

So busy. No time to put their name on a bill.

could urge them to discuss this with Senator Kerry.

I'm not from Massachusetts so he's not my Senator but perhaps we could all write to our individual Senators asking them to co-sponsor the single payer bill.

I will do that.

6. This is a blistering indictment of The Democratic Senators.
Many of those same Democratic Senators will openly admit that Single Payer is the best and most economical way to provide Health Care to ALL Americans,

....and yet, they won't vote for it it.
There is only one thing that is stopping them,
$$$$$$$$$$ from the Health Insurance Industrial Complex.
This is an open admission that they are ALL (except Bernie) bought and Paid For.


"There are forces within the Democratic Party who want us to sound like kinder, gentler Republicans. I want us to compete for that great mass of voters that want a party that will stand up for working Americans, family farmers, and people who haven't felt the benefits of the economic upturn."---Paul Wellstone
