Democrats pass health care reform by reconciliation

This petition had 89 supporters

Almost everyone knows that reforming our costly and unevenly available health system is essential, we've got to argue for a public option as a minimum, better. Republicans, however, see blocking Democrats' bills as a higher priority, so efforts to achieve cooperation have failed.  Because health care reform is urgent, Congress must now pass the Senate health care bill and use reconciliation to send it to the President. Forget the chimera of bipartisanship. Use simple democracy to achieve reform.  And, stop Stupac Amendment, and any variations there of.  As well, no trigger, because triggers don't get pulled, no co-ops, or hammer; also must include anti-trust provisions.  Also, please, advocate for singlepayer healthcare, with Community First Choice Option and CLASS Act (Community Choice Act for the handicapped, elderly, autistic, disabled, etc.); H.R. 3200 & S. 703, with Senate Amendment 2837.  Please, join in the effort to pass health care reform now.
