Sample Script –
my name is ______________ and I am a ________________(physician/medical student/health professional) in ________ (city), and am a constituent of Representative _________________. I am calling to urge Representative ___________________ to support of H.R. 676, Rep. John Conyers’ Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. Rep. Conyers introduced H.R. 676 shortly after the Congress was back in session in January, with 51 initial cosponsors. It now has more than 90. I want to reaffirm my support for H.R. 676, single-payer health care legislation, and ask Rep. ____________________ to do the same by signing on as a cosponsor and working for true reform of our deeply flawed health care system. The Affordable Care Act, while it made some improvements around the edges of our system, has not provided a fundamental solution — there are still tens of millions who are uninsured, and rising premiums, copays and deductibles are causing people to avoid necessary medical care. A single-payer health care system, as proposed in H.R. 676, would save lives and money. It would save approximately $500 billion annually by cutting out the bureaucracy and paperwork imposed on our current health system by the private health insurers. It would give more freedom of choice and access to quality care for patients and it is the most economical way to make sure we all can access care when we need it. Now is the time to guarantee health care for every American. If you have any questions about single payer or about me, please call me at __________________.
