Please call the chairmen of the Energy & Commerce and Ways & Means committees and tell them that:

"Because the majority of Americans, doctors, and nurses support a single-payer healthcare system, we need a robust debate on single-payer healthcare--with single-payer advocates as witnesses. Please follow Rep. George Miller's lead and hold hearings on single-payer healthcare in your committee."

Call or fax the two Committee Chairmen and ask them to hold Single-Payer hearings
