We need you
at the single payer health care
hearing and lobby day on Wednesday, October 8!
Please come and show your support for
the Massachusetts Health Care Trust (S.686).
Let’s show the legislators that there is broad support for universal, single payer health care.
WHAT THE BILL WILL DO:
This legislation guarantees every Massachusetts resident first class health care coverage by replacing the current patchwork of public and private health care plans with a uniform and comprehensive health plan. It creates a single public entity called the Health Care Trust to replace all the present public and private bureaucracies.
Come and bring your friends, family, and colleagues.

More that you can do:
Call, write, or email your legislators and ask them to testify in support of S.686. If you are able to attend the hearing ask them for a meeting after the hearing as part of our lobby day.
Call, write, or email members of the Health Care Committee and tell them you want them to report S.686 out of committee with an “OUGHT TO PASS” recommendation. A list of the members is below.
