Subject: *Government Single Payer Option..

Bart: I ask you to send out the word to all Democrats to call their Congresscritters and their Senators and tell them that
we have been betrayed on everything we have stood for so that they can get elected. When it comes to health care,
we expect them to take the money from the health insurers and from big phara and for just this once vote for the people anyway.

We didn’t get war crimes trials, we didn’t get an immediate end to the war in Iraq.
We paid trillions to thieves in bailouts and we don’t even have newspapers or jobs anymore.
But we still pay taxes and we still have to pay the trillions the bankers borrowed.

We demand to be able to join the federal government health care plan. Period.
We will pay the cost, but we can’t be turned down.
This is to be available starting January 1, 2010, not years away.

We demand that when the Democratic Congress decides whether to betray the people or their corporate bribers,
that this time they must choose the people and let their corporate bribers be disappointed. The people have been
disappointed enough, the corporate bribers have never been disappointed.

Single-Payer and the 'Democracy Deficit'

Or, 'Why corporate control of the media may be hazardous to your health'..

"Americans think that it’s healthcare that produces health, when there really is very little evidence for that. What turns out to be really important is the nature of caring and sharing in society….Where societies are more equal --- and economic equality is the thing that is most important in this --- people look after each other…and pretty well everyone does better. There’s almost nothing that is better in a society that tolerates the extreme levels of inequality in the United States. And so, we end up dying younger than people in all the other rich countries, despite spending half the world’s healthcare bill." - Dr. Stephen Bezruchka, March 30, 2009

"Who are we? Is this what we have become --- a nation that dumps people off like garbage who can't pay their hospital bills?" - Michael Moore, following a segment in which a confused elderly woman in a flimsy hospital gown is dumped curbside near a Skid Row rescue mission, in his documentary Sicko!*

In Failed States (2006), Prof. Noam Chomsky, a preeminent linguist and one of this nation’s most prolific political writers, concludes that the U.S. suffers from a “democracy deficit” --- the significant gap between the policy positions of the electorate and their elected representatives --- which he attributes to the manner in which “elections are skillfully managed to avoid issues and marginalize the underlying population…freeing the elected leadership to serve the substantial people."
