Good News! A new advocacy group, Montanans for Single-Payer, has just formed.
From their website: http://montanansforsinglepayer.org/
“HOW WILL WE ACHIEVE SINGLE-PAYER UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE?
Montanans for Single-Payer is reaching out to Montanans and across the nation to provide information on why only a single-payer approach can bring real change to American health care. We are active in all 56 counties and can notify 14,000 Montanans of developments in health care reform. We recognize that Montanans have a unique opportunity to help shape the future of health care in America because U.S. Senator Max Baucus is a key player in that effort. Montanans for Single-Payer believes he will listen to the voices of Montanans so Montanans must make clear that we want a single-payer health care system. Utilizing our email campaign, we plan to activate a network of Montanans whenever there is a decision on health care reform coming up in Washington, D.C. urging citizens to contact Senators Baucus and Tester, Representative Denny Rehberg, and President Barack Obama.”
As you know, Senator Max Baucus has blocked even the consideration of single-payer reform from the table. Hopefully, Montanans for Single-Payer can help.
