Kit, I think this is the program you are referencing:

"Five Capitalist Democracies & How They Do It"
Each has a health care system that delivers health care for everyone -- but with remarkable differences.

Lets be sure to help each other out.  If you have your own blog, link to these sites.  Share the items they are posting in news items here and elsewhere.


We want the news and the aides in congressional offices that track news and blogs to see that there is real support for Single Payer.  Each of us doing the little we can, adds to the noise level.


We can help raise their rankings with the search engines like Google by having links going back to them and doing searches and choosing them in the results list.


So here is my blog - the primary purpose of which is to get links from an active blog back to the groups doing the heavy lifting:

Working For the Common Good


My Sharebook here - which imports from my blog (but seems to have a glitch in it right now)


My Shared Google Reader


My StumbleUpon page - almost all health care


Be sure and share yours in this topic so we can visit!

Medical Bills to Congress

In the past few days, our allies in Congress have made serious gains in health care reform. But one thing is still uncertain -  whether we'll see a strong, immediate public health insurance option.

President Obama last week indicated that, in order to keep insurance companies "honest" and reduce costs, we must provide Americans with the option of a public health insurance plan.

Now it's time to convince Congress; and the strongest proof that our current health care system is broken is probably sitting on your kitchen table - your medical bills.

What are you spending on health care? Generate your own medical bill online, and send it to Congress:

Today, the Senate is working on a plan for health care reform. The public health insurance option needs to be a part of it because it does three things:

  • Lowers costs for individuals and families by competing side-by-side with private insurance plans
  • Sets high standards for quality and accessibility that other plans will strive to meet
  • Gives Americans more choice in their coverage by offering an affordable alternative to over-priced plans
Congress needs to understand what we're paying for health care. Use our tool to generate a medical bill and send it to your Senators:

After 80 years, we finally have the solution to this health care crisis in our sights. Thanks for joining us in our summer-long sprint to the finish line.

Geri Jenkins, RN, co-president of the 86,000-member California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, and a practicing RN at the University of California San Diego Medical Center, is expected to describe how the nation's healthcare meltdown is a "patient care crisis" and how single-payer reform best meets the goals identified by President Obama for reform of the broken system.
