Love your enthusiasm and work for single payer. I have been posting the videos all over trying to raise some money for them.
Would you do us a favor and not start a new topic for each post on the same issue? We want to keep the same things together to make it easier for new folks to catch up with where we are.
The opposition's ads are coming soon -- See this article Â Â Â Â Â Â www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21746.html Craig Brooks Â Ref. to the newsÂ releaseÂ ________________________________ From: Care2 Groups: Campaign for Universal Single Payer Health Care Mailing List To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Tuesday, April 28, 2009 11:49:03 AM Subject: [Campaign for Universal Single Payer Health Care] TV ADS FOR SINGLE PAYER SET TO GO - WITH YOUR HELP! TV ADS FOR SINGLE PAYER SET TO GO - WITH YOUR HELP!Â 9:48 AM Hereâs an important message (passing along from an email): Â Earlier today I circulated an ideaÂ for single payer advocates to do what MoveOn.org does:Â Â Raise lots of money on the Internet for media ads - becauseÂ Single Payer Will Lose If We Don't Reach the Masses. Â I was immediately contacted by Dr. Clark Newhall in Utah (www.1payer.net) who has been working with Actor Mike Farrell ("BJ Hunicutt" from TV's MASH) to produce a series of 30 and 60 second TV ads supporting single payer Medicare-for-All.Â Â Four of the five adsÂ have beenÂ finished with voiceovers, titles and music.Â Â Â SEE THEM HERE: www.1payer.net/videos/medicare-for-all.html Â We must act now to motivate America to speak to Congress.Â Â We must reach a national audience with TV advertising to motivate Americans to contact their Representatives and Senators to demand the only real solution to the health care crisis - Single Payer Medicare for all. Â As Fredrick Douglas famously said:Â Â Â Â "POWER CONCEDES NOTHING WITHOUT A DEMAND... IT NEVER DID...AND IT NEVER WILL..." Â I CANNOT SAY THIS STRONGLY ENOUGH: "WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET THE PEOPLE TO DEMAND SINGLE PAYER IN SUFFICIENT NUMBERS TO FORCE THEIR REPRESENTATIVES & SENATORS TO HAVE THE POLITICAL COURAGE TO BUCK THE INSURANCE COMPANIES UNLESS WEÂ CAN REACHÂ THE MASS OF AMERICANS WITH THE SINGLE PAYER MESSAGE.â Â These ads are ready to go on the air starting next week, but we need your help to raise the funds necessary.Â Â Â Will youÂ help now to raise the $50,000.00 necessary toÂ put the Mike Farrell ads on TV next week. Â Click Here to:Â Donate today. The time is short Â and PASS THIS PLEA ONTO YOUR EMAIL LISTS Â These Ads are powerful.Â Â Â But they are only as powerful as you make them. Â They are only powerful when they are seen. Â They can only change the minds of Congress if Congress knows that they are empowering Americans to say: Â Medicare For All. Â Now. Â Everybody In, Nobody Out. Donate today. The time is short Â Congress is writing health care reform in closed door meetings with insurance company lobbyists as we activists sit here and preach to the choir. Â It's time to stop preaching to the choir.Â Â It's time to get the Mike Farrell ads on TV.Â Â Now. Â Not in a month.Â Not in July or September when it may be too late.Â Â Â WE MUST DRIVE THE DEBATE NOW TO STEER IT TO SINGLE PAYER.

Ref. to the news release:
Donate today and help raise the $50,000.00 we need for this initial ad campaign. If each of the thousands of single payer supporters donates only $50, we can do it easily. If everyone donates $100 dollars, we can do it faster and put more ads.
Think how much you will save if we have Medicare For All. If you think of it as an investment, 100 dollars now will save you thousands in insurance premiums when we have Medicare For All. Donate today. Donate for yourself and then give some more for those who don't have enough. Donate whatever you can afford, even if you think it is too small to help. Even small donations multiplied by thousands adds up. Obama won the Presidency with small Internet donations. All of us together can do it.
DO IT NOW !
IMPORTANT - PLEASE FORWARD THIS PLEA TO ALL YOUR EMAIL LISTS
SPREAD THE WORD !!
Thanks for all you do.
