My Page Billboard

Email, write, call your Senators! We need a single-payer health insurance system! No caving in to the fears and demands of an entrenched and unnecessary business model and industry! No tolerance of obstructionism!  We cannot allow a reactionary minority determine what our government does!  The Know-Nothing Party must not be allowed to block real reform.  And until the Republicans return to the principles of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ike and turn away from reactionary hate-mongers like Rush Limbaugh, they are no better than the Know-Nothings of the 1850s.
