Here are some of the things that you can do immediately to push forward real single payer legislation, H.R. 676. 1. Visit the editorial board of your newspaper; 2. Send letters to the editors and to columnists and writers of newspapers nationwide including the New York Times editorial board; 3. Get on the list for newspaper articles on a daily basis (write joykal1@aol.com) 4. HOLD AN EVENT or HEARING this coming month (APRIL) or soon in your neighborhood or state (See guidelines for organizing on the Healthcare Now website. http://www.healthcare-now.org/action/how_to.htm. INVITE YOUR CONGRESS MEMBER. But don’t wait on Congress. It is the people’s movement rising up from the bottom that will get us a national single payer healthcare system. No Congress or Presidential candidate is going to provide us with the healthcare system we need without our massive efforts; 5. Call or write Health Care Now for organizing suggestions. 1-800-453-1305 ; info [at] healthcare-now.org; 6.
