Upcoming Single Payer Events in NYC

August 27, 2009

from Private Health Insurance Must Go! Coalition

Dear PHIMG Supporter:

The policies proposed by the cash-and-carry Congress still fall short of guaranteeing quality health care for all Americans. America deserves nothing less then a true national health care program — expanded and improved Medicare for All. HR-676 NOW!
