Barack Obama On How to Get Single-Payer

I do not like the lack of response to date from Senator Barack Obama and his staff to the repeated requests that he support single-payer national health insurance. Those requests have been given to him by hundreds of people on his own web site.

More importantly, I do not like the lack of a positive response from Senator Obama to the people of New Hampshire, who have made it perfectly clear to him and the entire country what we, the people, want: single-payer national health insurance.


However, I do give Barack Obama credit for being one of my motivators that has me going forward confidently regarding asking people to write notes to their U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators via the U.S. Postal Service.

WRITE NOTES. On April 3, 2007 Senator Obama made it very clear to citizens at his community meeting on health care in New Hampshire that personally-composed notes can and do get results in terms of establishing the health care policy that citizens want.

WRITE NOTES. He also made it clear on that day that he requires citizens to act. He said " ... I have to insist on the voters rallying for this change".

Reference for both of Obama's points and more:

WRITE NOTES. I was in his office on November 2, 2007 and heard one of his staff give a constituent the same message: constituents can best give their input by composing it and send it in the mail so that the staff can keep good track of it and respond to it.

Let's follow this popular Senator's advice! Let's keep on writing our notes every three months and get single-payer! --- If you support him, include his campaign office on your list of where you send your notes!
