  • Whereas: The escalating costs of health insurance and health care are creating unprecedented strains on our economy;

    Whereas: our businesses function in a global economy where healthcare is provided as infrastructure for the competition;

    Whereas: there are presently 45 million uninsured Americans;

    Whereas: healthcare costs are a leading cause of corporate and personal bankruptcies;

    Whereas: our spending on Medicare and Medicaid alone exceeds per capita spending for universal coverage in other developed countries;

    Whereas: the federal, state and local governments of the United States already spend 45% of all healthcare dollars;

    Whereas: healthcare costs continue to grow at a rate in excess of three times the Consumer Price Index, growth which cannot be sustained.

    We, the undersigned, do hereby petition the Congress of the United States to establish a system of Universal Healthcare for all Americans.

    Such a system would embody the following features:

    Care and coverage universally available for all

    Freedom to choose service provider

    Single-payer insurance similar to other developed nations.
