[PDI] Fwd: [Citizen Action/Illinois] Health Care for America Now!

Healthcare availability has been a top concern of the PDI group based on the frequency of this topic in emails. Reading the email below it seemed to be something members of the PDI membership would be interested in.

It may not hit the single payer idea exactly "on the head" but this effort agrees with the need for everyone to have healthcare available to them. I know it is a compromise some people won't be happy with and this email will probably generate some discussion but at least we now have a focal point to move on to try and get everyone healthcare coverage.

Feel free to pass along this information.
