The Healthcare-NOW! network has been very busy this past month:

August and September are going to be just as busy. So we need your support more than ever.

Thanks for all that you do,
Healthcare-NOW! National Staff


Mad as Hell Doctors

On September 8, 2009 a group of dedicated Oregon physicians will take the message of Universal Health Care on the road in a wrapped and branded Motor Home headed for Washington D.C.

Their cross-country mission: To stop in big cities and whistle stops alike, conducting pre-booked, local and national media appearances for a curious press.

To find out more information about the road show, how you can support it, and a list of their cross-country stops, go to

Month of Single-Payer Action

For the first time ever, single-payer legislation will be debated and voted on by the House of Representatives in September.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (NY-9) introduced an amendment to President Obamas healthcare reform bill (HR 3200) that would replace it with HR 676, the single-payer bill, and Speaker Pelosi pledged to bring it to a debate and vote on the full House floor in September.

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is expected to bring S 703 to the floor for a vote in the Senate.

And Rep. Dennis Kucinich (OH) wants to enable states to establish single-payer systems.

Lets demand that our Congresspeople vote YES on Rep. Weiners amendment, S 703, and Rep. Kucinichs state single-payer amendment in September!

New Resource: Single-Payer Report Card

Healthcare-NOW!, along with Progressive Democrats of America, has produced a report card that compares single-payer healthcare with President Obamas public option proposal currently being debated in the House and Senate.


Please feel free to download and distribute the two-page report card. Download it here (.pdf).
