Rep. Weiner's single payer amendment will be introduced Monday

On Monday, Rep. Anthony Weiner will move to amend the Tri-Committee health care reform bill to essentially replace it with HR 676, thereby replacing the private health insurance industry with a single-payer national health insurance program.

The vote on the amendment will take place the same day it is offered -- Monday.

Henry Waxman, in support of the Weiner amendment. If not, please call early Monday morning or send a free efax through Messages are editable and can go to your own representative so he or she can see that single payer has district support.
