Rescind The January 27 Executive Order Barring Syrian Refugees and Visitors From 7 Muslim-Majority Countries
Barring refugees, visitors, and green-card holders based on their religion or country of origin goes against the bedrock values Americans cherish--freedom for all--and the recognition, enshrined in our Declaration of Independence that life and liberty are rights. To quote that document:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ... — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it."
We are the world's most affluent country and the the most powerful militarily. Let us continue to be a beacon of freedom. Rescind the 1/27/17 Order on Immigration.

Single payer saves over $500 billion annually on wasteful private insurance bureaucracy, enough to cover all the uninsured and to eliminate copayments and deductibles. The majority of Americans and physicians support a national health insurance program like Improved Medicare for All.
Single payer eliminates the threat of medical bankruptcy, ends insurer interference in the doctor-patient relationship, and saves tens of thousands of lives and billions of dollars per year.
