I'd like to heavily encourage Rep. O'Halleran to support H.R. 676. The United States needs healthcare reform that works for all Americans, not just the wealthy. A national single payer system is the most cost efficient solution to the problem, and it's equitable and puts us in line with other industrialized nations that guarantee all of their people healthcare. It is a human right, and too many Americans are left behind in our current system. Therefore, it is a moral imperative that we do everything we can to guarantee no one will have to forgo medical care because they fear the cost. The millions of Americans who cannot afford healthcare and those who are underinsured or facing high deductibles are depending on us to speak up for them. As a future physician, I hope that I never have a patient that waits too long to seek care because they can't afford to pay. I hope you'll support me and over 100 House Democrats in protecting the health of all Americans.
