    If she is the one who could help us get universal health coverage,

    universal health coverage is a sham phrase. It may mean guaranteed access to buying policies. It is not equal to single payer which will provide economies of scale as in Medicare with < 3% administrative costs compared to 20-30% for the insurance companies.

    "universal health coverage" could just mean mandated insurance company coverage with subsidies for the very poor like the Mass plan.  You can still be killed by big copays, exclusions.   And by choice. Ever try to compare 14 or 20 different plans like we had to for medicare D??? it stunk. If you have a few conditions it's impossible to do. Do you pick a plan that's better for cancer but not so good for hearth disease?  Do you even know enough to evaluate? Is free choice of doctors better than a limited panel?  

    No one is cured by health insurance. It's health care that works.

    Impeachment? Only when some Rethugs aboard. Pelosi/Reid can only pass measures they have the votes for. Write/call all: 800-828-0498

      Was a Canada-like program.  Or expanding Medicaid to  cover everyone.  I have no health insurance and no money to buy health insurance, so I do know what you mean.
