A Mandate (a demand) from the President

is that the American people establish their mandate (demand) for single-payer


In 2007 presidential candidate Barack Obama communicated that he insists on a mandate (a demand) for single-payer from the American public. Thus, he mandates that we have a mandate!

“I have to insist on the voters rallying for this change,” Obama said following the two-and-a-half-hour meeting with local residents. (4/3/2007)

President Obama asked us to rally for what change? The citizens at that day’s meeting in New Hampshire strongly urged him to support single-payer.

“When I take office, I have to feel I have a mandate for change.”

On that same day he gave a specific recommendation that would establish that mandate: a thousand to two thousand letters sent to each U.S. Representative insisting on single-payer national health insurance.

Letters in the U.S. Mail?

His office staff confirmed that letters are to be sent in the U.S. Mail. Americans can sign up to the Million Letters for Health Care Campaign to follow his recommendation, which then can establish the mandate as soon as we reach the necessary numbers in the 435 districts.

Obama hears from Seacoast on health care

By Shir Haberman

PORTSMOUTH - Illinois Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama made it very clear to the 200-plus people who attended what he called, “A Community Meeting on Health Care,” held at Seacoast Media Group’s new headquarters at Pease on Tuesday, that the universal health care plan he wants to develop for the country has to have the backing of its citizens.

“I want to be held accountable for establishing a universal health care plan by the end of my first term, but I have to insist on the voters rallying for this change,” Obama said following the two-and-a-half-hour meeting with local residents. “When I take office, I have to feel I have a mandate for change.”

He placed the blame for not finding a solution to the health care crisis that has left 47 million Americans uninsured and tens of millions under-insured on a lack of political will. The reason for that lack of will is not so much the influence of lobbyist money, he said, but the fear of politicians that they will not get re-elected.

However, without a concerted effort by the public to support a specific answer to the problem of rising health care costs and falling levels of accessibility, any plan will fail, he said.

“I’m not going to be able to do this by myself,” Obama said.
