Call-in to support national heathcare for all!

From the open publishing newswire: Heard on Free Speech Radio News today that Rep Conyers introduced after 1 1/2 yrs, consulting with Physicians and other groups, a bill called the US National Health Insurance Act. This means Health Care for all Residents of the U.S. as I understand it. It would improve/expand/strengthen Medicaire by slightly taxing bond/stock transfers, and repealing the Bush Tax cut.

URGE CONGRESSIONAL REPS TO SUPPORT THIS BILL !!!

Let's support and pressure our Legislative Reps to accept this bill.
