  • Genetically Engineered Foods
    I am a diabetic and have been for many years. I am very careful of what I eat and the size of the portions that I eat. I am very worried about the genetically engineered foods being put on the market with no identification marking to say it is GE food! I spend $15.00 per week at the local food pantry where the food sold is grown locally.

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure's CEO and Board Must Resign
    Susan G. Komen for the Cure CEO & Founder, Nancy Brinker, and the rest of the nine-member board, have put the entire organization at risk through blantant partisanship, deceit, departure from the organization's mission, and abuse of the public's trust. The 120 affiliate chapters, the millions of men and women who have run in their races, and the people the organization serves deserve leadership they can trust to put politics aside and put healthcare first. The organization can not maintain its leadership position so long as Brinker and the current board remain in place. It is time for them all to resign and time for the public to demand it.

  • Cuomo Forces Brooklyn Residents to travel to Staten Island for Health Care!
    Governor Cuomo is closing the only long term psychiatric Hospital in Brooklyn and sending a little over half of the patients and families to Staten Island. The other 115 beds are being closed forcing the other patients to be kicked out and possibly will be on the trains and the streets of Brooklyn. Kingboro services patients with a long history of being severely and persistently mentally ill, as well as forensinc patients. The South Beach Psychiatric Hospital is over 21/2 hours a way. Not to speak on the 650 employees whom could be jobless as well! Please help! It is Brooklyn who will suffer! The Kingsboro property will be like a shelter instead! Spread the word they are doing it quietly! The streets of Brooklyn will suffer the loss of mental health care. You only have to watch the news to know not having this service in Brooklyn will effect the community adversely. There is an attack on Brooklyn's Mental Health Center and on Brooklyn residents with a long history of being severely and persistently mentally ill. Please support not closing Kingsboro Psychiatric Center and Down State Hospital/ Medical School.There is an attack on the mental health System. There is also a smear Campaign to justify steeling Brooklyn tax dollars and not providing the services to Brooklyn. It doesn't make sense for Brooklyn the biggest borough to send our Mentally ill families to Staten Island 2 1/2 hours away for treatment, they will quicker take to the streets!

  • healthcare
    My petition is about the issue of healthcare. Too many times people who have lost their jobs lack medical insurance. If you receive unemployment that you pay taxes on, they deny you, no matter how sick you are. And to pay for insurance, they refuse to cover preexisting conditions. I am struggling this battle now. I have a lot of medical problems and desperately need surgery. Yet because my husband lost his job and receives unemployment, I can t get help. Tax paying people shouldn t be denied medical assistance when needed the most because federal government doesn t consider unemployment "real income" yet we pay taxes and pay real bills with it. Please hear a voice from a desperate tax payer and help change this.

  • Tell the FDA that we have a right to know what's in our food.
    The FDA is on the brink of approving genetically engineered salmon for human consumption. This would be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. The salmon is engineered to produce growth hormones year-round that cause the fish to grow at twice the normal rate. The government already requires labels to tell us if fish is wild-caught or farm-raised – don't we also have a right to know if our salmon is genetically engineered? Without labels, we'll never know. More than forty countries, including Russia and China, already require labels on genetically engineered foods. As Americans, we firmly believe that we deserve the same right to know what we are eating. That's why we hope you'll join us and over half a million other Americans in telling the FDA to require labels on genetically engineered foods. Eric Schlosser is the author of Fast Food Nation and a producer of the documentary Food, Inc. Gary Hirshberg is the Chairman of Stonyfield Farm and an advocate for sustainable food. By signing this petition, you will be submitting a comment to the FDA.

  • Increase Medicare reimbursement to Physicians and hospitals
    We need to make congress aware of the dire straits our physicians are in. They are all going away and there are no primary care drs to take their place. Nurse Practitioners onlyhave independent clinics in seven states. In all other states they must work for /or with Physicians .Blue Cross and all other private insurance companies are matching the low rates forcing extreme stress in hospitals and Dr practices. Congress needs to get off their luxurious medical Insurance and retirement packages, ( at the expense of the american people) and be on Medicare like the rest of us!
