Just saw Mike Farrell's ad on teevee for single payer health care!

See the ad at this link: http://www.1payer.net /

Last weekend, via the link, 7000 free faxes were sent and shut down the fax machines of Sen.Baucus, Rep. Pelosi and the WH! You can read more at the link and send a free fax.

1. Hmmm, I like most of it but I don't like the way he implies Obama
switched sides. He explained during the campaign that he didn't think he could get Single Payer through at the present time. Seemed perfectly honest to me. I trust that if he thinks circumstances have changed, he will attempt to get it through.

2. I saw that too but I look at this effort overall to get the message out
to a national debate level. According to the link single payer advocates have been cut out of the present day discussions. Going for the best may mean compromise in the end but better that than setting sights too low. Didn't Congress just vote appropriations to the tune of $82 for the wars....again? I also think that insurance costs for employers is outrageous and for self-employed people like myself, it's become out of reach after paying premiums for decades! Time to move on this. imho
