U.S. CONFERENCE OF MAYORS BACKS SINGLE-PAYER

The U.S. Conference of Mayors, meeting in Miami, adopted a resolution in support of single-payer national health insurance. The assembly, in unanimous vote, backed a resolution known as the "Improved and Expanded Medicare for All Act," sponsored by Rep. John Conyers of Michigan and 90 other members of Congress. . .

Conyers' bill would guarantee everyone care for all medically necessary services, contain costs by slashing the administrative waste and bureaucracy associated with the private insurance industry and assure patients their choice of doctor and hospital.

Hey, where has this idea been all this time? WOW, d'ya think Congress might use this as a hammer over the heads of medical industry lobbyers?

Ninety co-sponsors? Why that's about one out of every five in our Parliament of Whores (bow to PJ O'Rourke)and only months and months after the Conyers bill was offerred.

You go ahead and elect more Rahm-Nancys to Congress. Go ahead.

This is all so predictable!
