Governor Howard Dean, M.D. launches grassroots healthcare reform campaign at http://www.StandwithDrDean.com and draws line in the sand over healthcare reform which must have a universally available public option, like Medicare, available for all Americans.
As a first step in the campaign, Dr. Dean asked supporters to add their name to a petition statement at http://StandwithDrDean.com. The text of the petition reads:
Give America a choice. We support healthcare reform that allows individual Americans to choose either a universally available public healthcare option like Medicare or for-profit private insurance. A public option is the only way to guarantee healthcare for all Americans and its inclusion is non-negotiable. Any legislation without the choice of a public option is only insurance reform and not the healthcare reform America needs.
