Weiner Amendment Vote Moved to Wednesday
July 21, 2009, Washington, DC
Ask the Energy and Commerce Committee to vote YES on the HR 676 amendment.

The silence in the House of Representatives around single-payer healthcare and H.R. 676 will end this Wednesday. Rep. Anthony Weiner, (D-NY09), who has already rankled Republicans and Blue Dogs with his no-nonsense statements before the House Energy and Commerce hearing on H.R. 3200, will move to amend the current bill. His proposal is essentially to replace H.R. 3200 with H.R. 676—single payer Medicare for All.

This exciting and potentially monumental move needs our support. We pushed Rep. Dennis Kucinichs amendment to victory last Friday, and we can do it for Representative Weiner, too.

The full committee and its five subcommittees are spending the next three days debating the bill and performing their markups. This is the time to act, and Representative Weiner is making his move.

Call or fax the committee members and tell them you want them to support Representative Weiners proposal. Listen to his blunt analysis in Fridays session of what real healthcare reform is made of, and youll get some good ideas of what to say when you call or fax. Its a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners approach to the legislative process almost never heard on the House floor.
