single-payer health insurance

send 1,000 to 2,000 letters from every U.S. Congressional District to U.S. Representatives. He said that he must have a mandate from the people. His staff confirmed that letters are to be sent by U.S. Mail.

Sign up to make one call plus get excellent help to letters to U.S. Representatives** to get support.
