DescriptioniSinglePayer gives you a direct line to your congressperson so you can ask for effective health care reform in the United States of America. Let the 17,000 M.D.s at Physicians for a National Health Program explain the benefits of national, not-for-profit insurance:
"The U.S. spends twice as much as other industrialized nations on health care, $7,129 per capita. Yet our system performs poorly in comparison and still leaves 45.7 million without health coverage and millions more inadequately covered.
"This is because private insurance bureaucracy and paperwork consume one-third (31 percent) of every health care dollar. Streamlining payment through a single nonprofit payer would save more than $400 billion per year, enough to provide comprehensive, high-quality coverage for all Americans."
-- Physicians for a National Health Program
Let us be CLEAR: We are paying TWICE what other countries pay for health care, and still 45 million+ are uninsured. That's right, we are paying 140% more than the U.K., where every single citizen can visit any doctor, hospital, or clinic without dealing with any insurance bureaucracy!
