With the recent often inaccurate and ill-advised debate taking place in the media over the financing of single payer it is imperative that the record be set straight on the basic, irrefutable facts of single payer. Physicians and medical students who are well informed on the true facts should sign this open letter so that the nation understands clearly that we can ensure that absolutely everyone has free choice of health care in a system that is affordable for everyone, through an improved Medicare-for-All.
Go to medicare-for-all.us to sign the letter.
Colleagues should be encouraged to sign as well. Non-physicians are also encouraged to endorse this letter by signing on to a companion list at this same website.
