Single-payer model

All members of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, have failed to truly represent the people of the United States, taking money from oil and now siding with insurance and pharmaceuticals over consumers. Congressmen and women have used their office to promote their own individual wealth, denying the American people what is most important to them: single-payer healthcare for all. Other countries have done this for years, yet the U.S. Congress has instead decided to put our tax dollars into countless useless wars against our will. ItâÄôs time Congress steps up to the plate; stay in Washington in August and get the job done! We have the majority, now let’s use it; look past your own personal gain and vote for the single-payer plan. Vote the will of the people for once! Pam Lloyd Burnsville resident
