Universal Health Care Is Possible with HR 676

Flyer for HR 676 before and after showing of Michael Moore's Sicko
Dennis Kucinich has a bill before Congress (HR 676) to provide Universal, Single-Payer, NOT FOR PROFIT Health Care. HR 676 takes health care away from the insurance companies and gives it back to the physicians.

On Jan. 24, 2007, Reps. John Conyers and Dennis Kucinich led 43 other House members in introducing HR 676, the Conyers/Kucinich Health Care bill. Today the bill, which Kucinich helped write, is supported by 76 members of Congress, 250 union locals, and more than 14,000 physicians. HR 676 is endorsed by the New Hampshire State Legislature and by Michael Moore, producer of SICKO.

Call your members of Congress and tell them to support HR 676, the Conyers/Kucinich Health Care bill. 1-800-459-1887, 1-800-828-0498.

Sicko is an enlightening and thought provoking film! In it, Moore does a fantastic job of exposing the shortcomings and downright failures of our system...
But did you know that there is already a Bill in the House that proposes a solution? Its called HR676: National Health Insurance Act and 70+ Reps have already signed on to it!
Go here:  http://hr676.theunderrepresented.com/ to ask your rep to support this revolutionary legislation!
HR676 may not be the ultimate final answer to this massive problem, but we need to push Congress to continue the dialogue on this issue now!


It will take some doing 01.Jul.2007 13:44

Already politicians and unions(SEIU) are out to twist and distort,making sure to benefit corporate interests.
The health insurance companies are going to be ruthless, fighting tooth and nail, to keep a bill like 676 down, and to keep their millions and more in profits coming. We the public need to be willing to spend time: lobby our congress members, talk to our union members and anyone else who belong to the working and middle classes. Vote for politicians who support 676!!
