Independent Political Report
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dear Representatives Joe Courtney, Elizabeth Esty, Rosa DeLauro, Jim Himes and John Larson:
There are 109 colleagues of yours who are co-sponsors of HR 676, Congressman John Conyers’ single payer bill in the House that provides full Medicare for all with free choice of doctor and hospital.
Yet not one of you — members of the Connecticut Congressional delegation — has co-sponsored HR 676.
This despite majoritarian support, with a recent Pew poll showing 85% of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents saying the federal government should be responsible for health care insurance.
Why are you not representing your constituents on this critical reform that, as demonstrated in other countries, is much more efficient, provides much more choice and has better outcomes?..
