Support Single Payer healthcare. Every civilized nation in the world has it. The US is ranked 37the world behind Cuba and Costa Rica. For profits are stealing 45cents out of every health care dollar for CEO's, shareholders and advertising which contributes Zip to our health care. Delaware has a single payer health care bill and we can prove Delaware spends $7BILLION a year, Single payer would reduce that cost to $1 billion and thats a conservative figure. Go to: the fastes growing doctor/nurse association in the country all supporting single payer. Get rid of these for profit corporate healthcare plans which have no standard for reporting. Thats how the waste, fraud and abuse is occuring.
