We the People Demand HR 676!
Thursday, May 28, 2009

5th and Main
across the street from Humana
HR 676 – National Single Payer Health Care,
Expanded and Improved Medicare for All.
HR 676, a bill introduced into the US House of Representatives by Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI), would institute a single payer health care system by expanding a greatly improved Medicare system to everyone residing in the U. S.
HR 676 would cover every person for all necessary medical care including prescription drugs, hospital, surgical, outpatient services, primary and preventive care, emergency services, dental, mental health, home health, physical therapy, rehabilitation (including for substance abuse), vision care, hearing services including hearing aids, chiropractic, durable medical equipment, palliative care, and long term care.
HR 676 ends deductibles and co-payments. HR 676 would save hundreds of billions annually by eliminating the high overhead and profits of the private health insurance industry and HMOs.
This is part of a national week of action, May 27 to June 3, with events planned in over 20 cities. Check out the other events at Healthcare-NOW.org.
