iSinglePayer gives you a direct line to your congressperson so you can ask for effective health care reform in the United States of America. Let the 17,000 M.D.s at Physicians for a National Health Program explain the benefits of national, not-for-profit insurance:
"The U.S. spends twice as much as other industrialized nations on health care, $7,129 per capita. Yet our system performs poorly in comparison and still leaves 45.7 million without health coverage and millions more inadequately covered.
"This is because private insurance bureaucracy and paperwork consume one-third (31 percent) of every health care dollar. Streamlining payment through a single nonprofit payer would save more than $400 billion per year, enough to provide comprehensive, high-quality coverage for all Americans."
-- Physicians for a National Health Program
Let us be CLEAR: We are paying TWICE what other countries pay for health care, and still 45 million+ are uninsured. That's right, we are paying 140% more than the U.K., where every single citizen can visit any doctor, hospital, or clinic without dealing with any insurance bureaucracy!
iSinglePayer packs in the following features.
* Use GPS to automatically determine your local congressional district and state.
* Call your local member of congress, or any member of congress, without looking up any phone numbers.
* See how much money each member of Congress has accepted from the health insurance industry.
* View a slide show with facts about single-payer.
* Find the key players in the healthcare debate (e.g. Max Baucus) QUICKLY--they are listed right below your local congressperson. Call who counts!
Do not hesitate to download! The more calls and downloads, the better our chances of an effective health care system in this country.
Whether or not you are sure Single-Payer is the best reform, this app has information for YOU. Make sure you weigh in with your congressperson.

The U.S. is 38th. We should be 1st.
The United States ranks 38th in the world for health care. Most of the countries that rank higher than the U.S. have at least some sort of public option in place, if not a fully nationalized health care system. It's in a health insurance company's best interest to deny health care coverage to fatten their bottom line. This is not rocket science. Historically conservatives are always wrong. They were on the wrong side of slavery, they were on the wrong side of women's suffrage, and they're on the wrong side of health care reform. We need a single payer system.
Cheers and Jeers to Apple
This app does exactly what it says it will do. I was disgusted to learn of apple's decision to block this app. That decision should be left to us, THE CONSUMERS, by not downloading the app! You, the corporation, are not our overlords to tell us what to think and how to feel on any subject! The money in my pocket says that we, THE CONSUMERS, are in charge here! The consumers spoke and the app is again available for download. Cheers to apple for that.
I think we deserve healthcare for all! It's a basic right and it's corporations that have made it about profits instead of people. You have two sides being that of lobbyist for insurance companies (ie politicians on both sides) or for the people. I'm glad this finally got approved.
