New Observercast

Rise Up, Observer Readers!

BY SHARON MARTIN

Do you want single payer insurance? Not only do I want it, I need it.

The opportunity seems to be slipping away from us, and we need to act now. Write to your senators. In Oklahoma, that might not be an effective strategy, but write to them anyway. Our representatives should know what we, their constituents, want. That part is our responsibility.

Hold President Obama to his promises. Write to him. Tell him we need single payer insurance. And if he can’t offer that prize to the American people, tell him he must at least include a public insurance option.

Corporate insurance companies are lobbying against it because they know it would reduce rates – and their profits.

Citizens, demand it!

Affordable preventive care should be a right for every one of us.

If every Observer reader wrote a letter or two, what impact on the coming decisions might we have? Do it. Write a letter to the president, to your senators, even to Muck-It-Up Baucus and the healthcare reform committee.

Tell them what we want!
