• Save Maine's Mandated Health Insurance Benefits
    EVERY mandate in Maine was written by legislators in the past because an insurance company refused to cover an essential service. LD 882 is a bill that will eliminate dozens of mandated health insurance benefits, and jobs too. We must stop this bill in the House & Senate next week. To do this, we need you! Please make your voice heard by signing this petition (and contacting your state rep & senator this weekend) to stop legislation that only benefits insurance companies. For a full list of the Maine Mandated Health Insurance Benefits, visit: http://www.maine.gov/pfr/insurance/consumer/mandated_benefits.htm

  • NBC Universal Media say NO to Randall Terry
    Randall Terry's group is poised to buy advertising time on NBC's airing of the Super Bowl on Feb. 5, 2012. These 30 second spots will depict images of aborted fetuses which are disturbing and not fit for airing during what is a family-oriented sports event. Mr. Stephen B. Burke, CEO, of NBC Universal has the opportunity to prevent these reprehensible images that portray a 3rd trimester aborted fetus from being viewed by children. Randall Terry's group has furthered the hate messages against women and the LGBT community. He and his group is attempting to have the millions of NBC viewers witness despicable and offensive images on February 5, 2012.

  • The Michigan Health Exchange
    The Michigan Health Exchange will affect our healthcare for generations. Senate Bill 693 is a "Clearinghouse - Non-Profit" health exchange design that would forbid the exchange from negotiating better health insurance rates for us and the exchange would be owned by a private company and benefit insurance companies. An "Active Purchaser - Quasi Governmental or State Run" health exchange design would be owned and controlled by us, and individuals and businesses could be combined into a large group. The exchange could then negotiate better rates for us, lowering the cost of healthcare. This type of health exchange would benefit the businesses and people of Michigan.

  • Save Costs on Prescription Drugs
    The United States and New Zealand are the only countries allowing prescription drug advertising on television. This is great for drug companies, advertising agencies, and television networks. The latter depends more and more on the revenues of those ads, but aren't you getting tired of hearing all those ads? If the ads were banned, the high cost of TV advertising would be saved by the pharmaceutical companies, which in turn, should bring drug costs down considerably. Let's put more money in our pockets, and join the rest of the world!

  • Adopt National Single Payer Health-Care
    Petition to repeal Obama's health-care act and adopt a universal, tax funded single payer system for all. We can no longer afford the inefficiencies and periodic losses (job losses and changes, retirement, disability, rejection by insurance companies) of coverage associated with our disjoint mix of public and private health-care funding entities. We need the efficiencies and cradle to grave coverages that can only be provided by a system based on public funding and private service delivery.

  • A Petition to Allow Spouses and Minor Children to Join Medicare
    Retired workers on Medicare often have spouses who are not covered by Medicare. On Occasion, they also may have minor children who are uncovered by Medicare. As a result, a family may have a fragmented health insurance situation, with the head of household on Medicare, a spouse under an expensive individual plan, and children who may be under school insurance plans. It is expensive and confusing. This petition would unite family coverage under a single Medicare coverage.

  • Accessible, affordable healthcare
    Most doctors and several hospitals in the NY metropolitan area do not accept private insurance. For example, the NYSHIP Empire Plan ( to which most teachers, fireman and police officers belong) is not accepted by 95% of the doctors at NYPresbyterian/Colombia/ Cornell Hospital/ Hospital for Special Surgery (one of the best and largest in the country). Out of pocket expenses for a consultation alone can run thousands of dollars making it prohibitive for most patients. The healthcare system in this country continues to be rife with inequities in accessibility, cost and quality, and abundantly mismanaged, cost ineffective and corrupt. Our legislators need to continue to work on this problem to maximize quality, eliminate fraud and minimize the inequities that currently exist.
