Single Payer News, June 22, 2014

The Chicago chapter of Jobs with Justice has endorsed H.R. 676, national single-payer legislation sponsored by Congressman John Conyers of Michigan. H.R. 676 is also called “Expanded and Improved Medicare for All.”

Susan Hurley, executive director of Chicago Jobs with Justice, commented on the resolution: “Single-payer health care has to be our ultimate goal in the United States. It is the only humane and civilized choice, as well as being the best choice for health outcomes and cost.”

“The longer the delay, the deeper our shame in the eyes of the world and future generations,” Hurley stated.
