We want Single Payer and the Elimination of Profit based Medical Care
What kind of a democracy are we living in when the ONE group that should be considered the PRIMARY stakeholder in the health care reform debate, the American PEOPLE, is not even allowed a seat at the table?
Poll after poll show that the majority of American citizens favor some sort of single-payer, public option health coverage. Small business owners want it. Families want it. Sick people who have been dropped from their insurance companies' rolls want it. Grown children who are caring for parents who became ill before they reached the Medicare age want it. MILLIONS and MILLIONS of Americans want real, universal, affordable health coverage.
WHY does this Senate Finance Committee so smugly dismiss our concerns, our interests, and our voices?
Here's some political realism for you: Because they have been bought and paid for by the for-profit industries that make BILLIONS of DOLLARS a year milking money from American citizens.
Tell Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus that the American people are SICK and TIRED of Pay to Play !

NO MORE PAY TO PLAY POLITICS!
Why are there no advocates for Single Payer or Universal Health Care included in your discussions of health care reform?
Could it be that the Finance Committee of the United States Senate is a Pay to Play system just like Rod Blagojevich's Illinois?
