And clearly I'm not alone in the "fed up with the lies/time to get our voices out there" department:
The Episcopal Church is "on record" on this issue ... passing these two resolutions in Anaheim:
C071: Health Care Coverage for All
D048: Adoption of a "Single Payer" Universal Health Care Program
Read them. Mark them. Inwardly digest them. Forward them to your congressional representative. Write a Letter to the Editor. Show up at a Town Hall meeting. LET'S GET IT DONE!!
