Once people understand Single Payer, they support it.

So how do we get the word out?

Our idea is to release a new 30 second TV spot every day for one year.

We have enlisted popular Hollywood stars, influential politicians, health care reform organizers and activists and we now want to enlist you.

The 6th one, released today, is this one by Alberto Saavedra a HCR activist;

The Latino vote in California is pivotal.

So please visit our web site, inform yourselves and help by volunteering, blogging or just donating so we can broadcast some of these spots on TV or support our effort by voting for our campaign at

#2 Actress and Comedienne Lily Tomlin (a.k.a. Ernestine)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
