Bush Administration and HCFA

The Bush administration is currently considering new names for the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA). American Medical News, a publication of the American Medical Association, is conducting a poll on proposals for a better name. If you check the polling page at the link that follows, you will find that most suggestions are not serious. However, one stands out as representing the goal to which many of us are dedicated: National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA). Voting for this choice would send a message to the AMA that we are serious in our support of national health insurance. If enough of us register our votes, the message may even reach our political leaders.

Cast your vote now, and then forward this message to your friends and colleagues.

Vote for: National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA)

On behalf of the dream of health care justice for all in the United States, thank you.
