Single payer silence will be broken in the House, 6/10 at 10:30 AM

From Corrente we learn....

The Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions Subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee will hold a hearing titled “Examining the Single Payer Health Care Option” on Wednesday, June 10th at 10:30am in 2175 Rayburn House Office Building.

You may be able to watch via webcast.

Contact C-SPAN and let them know we would like them to carry it. C-SPAN's Main Number is: (202) 737-3220.

U.S. Rep. George Miller (CA-7) chairs the subcommittee that will be conducting the hearing and is a co-sponsor of HR 676, "Expanded and Improved Medicare for All." On 6/2/09, another co-sponsor was added--Marcia Fudge (OH-11)--to bring us up to 78 co-sponsors.

Please contact your U.S. Rep., tell them you are a single-payer supporter, and let them know you want them to attend this hearing. The toll-free number for the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044.

If you don't know who your U.S. Rep. is, go to to find out.

For those of you who would like to attend in person and can make the trip to D.C., hearings are open to the public. Just make sure you get there early, so you get a seat.
