Take five minutes to make a difference. Contact Congressman Heath Shuler at (828) 252-1651 or e-mail him via his Web site (shuler.house.gov) to urge him to support a government-run insurance plan. This does not mean people won't have a choice, but a public plan will be a safety net for those with pre-existing conditions or no health insurance, and an intelligent plan to reduce the cost for those who can't afford health insurance.
The United States is the only industrialized nation that does not guarantee access to health care as a right of citizenship. Discussion and changes are being proposed. Call Heath Shuler now. Make a difference.
