Senator: Sign the Petition for… single-payer health care.
Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders is asking people to sign a petition for single-payer (nationalized) health care that is posted on his Senate website.
A page on his website asking people to sign the petition reads, “Our current private health insurance system is the most costly, wasteful, complicated and bureaucratic in the world. Today, 46 million people have no health insurance. Even more are underinsured with high deductibles and co-payments… The time is now to take on the powerful special interests in the insurance and pharmaceutical industries and pass a single-payer national health care program."
Senator Sanders also sent out an e-mail news letter from his Senate e-mail account asking people to sign the petition.
