You are the chair of an important health care committee that could affect the livelyhood of millions of Americans. Stop the Ryan-ization of our health care !

  • De-criminalize marijuana Nationally
    A recent informal poll indicated that 6 out of 10 of American voters think that marijuana should be legalized or decriminalized and taxed like that other drug, alcohol. At the very least, MEDICAL marijuana should be legalized federally so that patients and dispenseries and grow facilities can conduct their business without fear of prosecution.

  • Save Medicare from the heartless--and extend it to senior retirees abroad.
    Medicare does not cover millions of qualified seniors because they live outside the US---even though care would cost less. (Excellent health care in Mexico, for example, costs about 50% less.) So when chest pains strike, there are only two choices for many retired expatriates: (1) immediate treatment causing bankruptcy or (2) passive suicide. than forcing them to return to the US for treatment.

  • Non Profit only for Health Insurance
    The conversion of non-profit health insurance companies to for-profit insurers has required there be profits payable to shareholders. The equation should only include providers, health care costs and patients. Require health insurers to be non profit companies and replace the interest of shareholders with the interests of stakeholders: patients and their providers.

  • Put single payer on the table!
    Our huge deficit is forcing terrible cuts across the country. Yet we are not addressing the root cause - out of control health care costs. Rather than bankrupt America, it is time to put for-profit health care out of its misery and give us the only rational way of controlling health care costs and cover all Americans.

  • Autism Blue Ribbon Vanity Plate
    Autism is a word that is heard in Maine communities more today, than in latter years. Autism Research has significantly increased allowing families the understanding & tools needed to provide for their children with Autism, in a loving, supportive house hold network. Sadly, there is more research and awareness to be conducted, as the number of Maine children diagnosed with Autism increase. The solution involves funding. A Blue Ribbon Vanity Plate not only funds Autism awareness, treatment, and research, but also shows people within your community diagnosed with Autism that you care.

  • CCS School Board: Restrict Sugar in Schools
    I in 10 kindergarteners entering Charlottesville City Schools is overweight or obese. From the 4th Grade on, it's 1 in 3. In addition to the short and long term health burden on our community, overweight students tend to suffer emotionally and psychologically and perform poorly in school. Sugar is directly linked to weight gain and is considered by many experts to be an anti-nutrient. Yet, on any given day as many as 4 of these items - cookies, ice cream, sugary yogurts and cereals and candy - are offered to students at CCS. We're calling on the School Board to take a stand.
