SF forum to explain how HR 676, the US National Health Insurance Act, can solve our healthcare crisis.

On Saturday, January 31, 2009, members of the San Francisco grassroots healthcare reform advocacy group "Single Payer Now" will answer 35 questions in 35 minutes about HR 676, the "single payer" healthcare reform legislation in Congress. HR 676 would cover everyone in the U.S. and remove the insurance industry from our healthcare system.
