Please join us this Wednesday, December 16th at 4 PM,
memorializing the 45,000 people who die every year for lack of health insurance in the United States.

Insurance companies profit, people die!

We believe health care is a human right.
Everyone should have access to guaranteed quality health care.
The U.S. health care system, driven by profit for insurance companies, does not ensure quality health care for all.
The “public option” does not go far enough in reforming this system.

A single-payer system is a more affordable system that provides
quality health care for all.

2. Call and/or email Senators Landrieu and Vitter!

Senator Landrieu - (202) 224-5824 or

Senator Vitter - (202) 224-4623

Ask them to support Sen. Bernie Sanders’ amendment - (Senate Amendment 2837) - to the current health care reform bill, which gives states the option to develop a single-payer system.

Ask your friends and relatives to call up senators in their own states!
