We have been lied to over and again
in our attempts to get a debate and a vote on Medicare for All. Our
last hope to negotiate a state waiver to ERISA, which would allow

includes a mandate forcing us to buy defective corporate insurance policies

This is the straw that breaks the camel's back. Please make these two calls and use the "forward-to-a-friend' button above to send this action to like-minded people you know.
