Senator Bernie Sanders: A PETITION TO CONGRESS - Supporting 20 Single-Payer Health Care
Our current private health insurance system is the most costly, wasteful, complicated and bureaucratic in the world. Today, 46 million people have no health insurance. Even more are underinsured with high deductibles and co-payments. Close to 20,000 Americans die each year because they donít have regular access to a doctor.
The time is now for our nation to address the most profound moral and economic issue we face.
The time is now for our country to join the rest of the industrialized world and provide cost-effective, comprehensive quality health care to every man, woman and child in our country.
The time is now to take on the powerful special interests in the insurance and pharmaceutical industries and pass a single-payer national health care program.
Tell Congress to Stop the Internet Rip-Off
Time Warner Cable is still trying to restrict Internet use and shamelessly overcharge people who use the Web every day. But we've got a new bill in Congress and a plan to stop greedy phone and cable companies from padding their pockets by curbing our Internet use. Tell Congress to Stop the Internet Rip-Off

Peltier: Emergency health crisis needs response
The following alert was released on July 19 by the Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee.
Kari Ann Cowan, Peltier's niece, reported on July 19 from the prison at Lewisburg that Leonard may have suffered a heart attack. She stated, "He had a hard time breathing. He was in his cell and had an ache in his chest. He was kinda scared he was having a heart attack. He raised his hands, breathed slowly and finally felt better."

Be polite and courteous and express your concern for his health and welfare. We gotta step up. Make reference to Leonard Peltier #89637-132. Call Warden Scott Dodrill at (570) 523-1251.
