    •  Call Senate Finance Committee members TODAY (0+ / 0-)

      There's a Roundtable (like a hearing) in the Senate Finance Committee tomorrow, Tues. 5/5 that has included NO single payer advocates.  Call your Senator, if he or she is on the Finance Committee, to ask that Dr. Oliver Fein of Physicians for a National Health Program be invited to testify - and to ask that an expert from PNHP be invited to the May 14th Roundtable.  Call even if they're not on the Finance Committee to tell them you support Single Payer.  Call Max Baucus, too, the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, to tell him to put Single Payer back on the table.
      Here are numbers for the Democrats on the Committee:
      Arkansas: Blanche Lincoln - (202) 224-4843
