Today, Single-payer health care reform advocacy groups across America are encouraging everyone to participate in today's National Call-in Day for HR 676.
This house resolution is not Universal Health Care, which is similar to California's Auto Insurance Program in which people are forced to buy health insurance from private companies.
It is also different from Socialized Medicine which is what the V.A. is.
This would create a single payer system to manage payments, run like Medi Care and without the overhead that private insurance companies have, (corporate jets, advertising, million dollar bonuses, etc.). Hospitals and doctors would would still be private.
