Lansing, Michigan. The Michigan State AFL-CIO is the 34th state federation to endorse HR 676, single payer healthcare legislation.
“H. R. 676 - The United States National Health Insurance Act … was introduced in the U.S. House in 2007 by Representative John Conyers. The Michigan AFL-CIO supports this bill because it’s a single payer plan that removes the profit from the system and forces savings in administration. It may be the only workable solution.” (http://www.miaflcio.org/Healthcare/index.php)
Representing 800,000 union members, the Michigan AFL-CIO is one of the largest state federations in the country.
