Bend Over. This Might Sting A Bit.
the way health insurance currently works in this America:
You pay your health insurance premium to the
insurance company. They then proceed to do everything in
their power to deny you coverage while simultaneously employing
a huge wad of your money to bribe congressmen to write
laws in their favor.
That's not a sick joke, that's exactly how it works. We actually
pay the insurance companies to make us sicker.
Why don't we simply give all of our money to insurance company
executives and then shoot ourselves in the head? It'd save
The answer is single-payer insurance.
With single-payer there are no executives gaming the system.
Your premium payment goes to the government, along with everyone
else's, and when you see the doctor the government writes
them a check.
With single-payer we can all afford to see the doctor on
a regular basis, whereupon they can practice lifelong preventive
medicine rather than end-of-life emergency
With single-payer insurance parents won't
lay awake at night worrying about the cost of health care
for their kids. Result:
Kids grow up healthier. Parents sleep better.
With single-payer you'll never worry about medical costs
bankrupting your family. Medical costs
are the number one cause of bankruptcies in this country.
With single-payer insurance companies no longer have to directly
foot the bill for usurious health coverage, meaning the cost
American products, like
cars, can be competitive in the world again.
Result: More jobs.
With single-payer insurance America becomes healthier, happier
and more productive.
The insurance companies and the drug companies are fighting
the implementation of a single-payer system tooth-and-nail.
(In fact, according to a recent report by Common Cause the
healthcare industry is spending $1.4 million a day on lobbyists.
That's about $600 million a year.) This opportunity may never
come again so call your congressman's office and
nice clerk on the other end of the line that you want single-payer
health insurance , thank you very much. They'll listen.
