Read about, and advocate for universal healthcare; singlepayer, now :)
Single-Payer Now! :)
Our country has the most expensive health care system in the world, yet we were ranked 37th by the World Health Organization in 2000.
The Green Party advocates for health care as a right for all, and we support a Single-Payer system as the most efficient and effective way to get there. We are the only political party to do so. A Single-Payer system would eliminate the for-profit insurance companies, lower the cost of health care in the United States by as much as one third, and would remove the financial burden on businesses suffering from the recent economic meltdown - replacing employee-based health care benefits.
But Single-Payer has been barred from the public debate because of the influence of insurance, HMO's, and pharmaceutical lobbies through campaign contributions, 'astroturf' (false grassroots) operations, and dishonest advertising.
The health care reform debate demonstrates why America desperately needs an independent noncorporate party. Democratic and Republican politicians are swimming in campaign donations from the insurance industry, receiving over $46 million in insurance money in 2008. There is no Single-Payer voice at the table.
Help us work to bring a Single-Payer voice to the table by donating to the Green Party of the United States.
Our media coordinator, Scott McLarty, recently wrote an OpEd piece entitled "Fire Departments and Health Care'. You can read it here.
We need Green voices in this nation! We need Green legislators in Congress! Contribute to keep the Green Party strong. Remember, we are the only party that supports Single-Payer and health care as a right for all.
Help us hold that vision of single-payer health care alive. Donate what you can to strengthen our voice so that we can make our vision a reality. If you have given recently, please consider giving more. And, if you haven't given in some time, please consider making today the day you give.
If you can only afford a little each month, you can become a monthly sustainer so your donation can be spread over time.
Click here to help make our voice stronger with your contribution or monthly donation. Our accountability to future generations depends upon what we do today.
The Green Party takes no money from real estate companies, investment firms, or insurance companies. In fact, we don't take any corporate money because we think corporate money in politics is wrong. If you agree, please help us today. Your donation to the Green Party will help make sure we have a strong Green party today and into the future.

We are not the alternative - we are the imperative. Rosa Clemente
