Let's Tell Speaker Pelosi:

New York Wants a Strong Public Option and Affordability in H.R. 3200

Join fellow New Yorkers in signing this letter to Speaker Pelosi

As Congress moves closer toward passing health care reform legislation, we must make sure that House leadership is going to firmly fight for a public option and strong affordability provisions in the final reform package.

According to this article from the Daily News, Speaker Pelosi is signalling a willingness to compromise, putting the public option in jeopardy. We must make our postion very clear to Speaker Pelosi: New York needs a public option and subsidies for families up to at least 400% of the federal poverty level so health care is accessibly to New York's working families.

Let's spread the word and get 3,200 signatures on the letter to help pass H.R. 3200!

Use the form below to sign this letter to Speaker Pelosi, and please add your personal comment too!

1645 October 29, 2009 Munir Ghiasuddin New Windsor, NY When a certain exit on a highway keeps having accidents and a lot of cars get smashed and even a certain number of people die, the road and highway departement take a survey and do some thing to fix that spot. Is Congress waiting for some thing like that to happen? I wrote a book to wake up people in the government. The fictional town adopts a weird and creepy policy to open up the eyes of people in health care business. I am afraid that what happens in my book might really take place in America. I am sending a copy of it right now to you.
1644 October 27, 2009 Barbara Ehrentreu Stamford, CT The majority of this country wants a strong public option. The best would be single payer or a system such as we have for Medicare. But please do not give up on this. The House must pass a strong bill that gives the public option to all states without an opt out clause. That way if we do need to have a compromise there will be a strong alternative.

1629 October 14, 2009 Laura Bolotsky Scarsdale, NY I am thrilled that there is a real move on by the citizens of the USA to be heard as to their desire to have a public option as part of health care reform and affordability as part of the platform.
