Via SarahLee's dKos diary:

If you want to read the bill, H.R. 676, just go to Thomas.gov, click in Conyers' name and scroll down to 676 - right now it says that the bill has not yet been received from the GPO.

Consider Chris Murphy notified from Pumpkin Hill. Hey, I knocked on doors for that guy..

I can't imagine why he wouldn't support it, it sounds right up his alley.

Stay warm, it's nasty out there!

I figured you would contact him as well. :) ctblogger already has him on record as supporting healthcare reforms in debates, as we have discussed before, but we also discussed that it was clear that he was not discussing true Universal Healthcare of the "single payer" kind.

Little fixes won't solve the HUGE problems. And judging by his actions and responses to questions on other issues during the campaign, I think he can be swayed towards real fixes, or at least will consider them... If he doesn't support these ideas already? I don't remember anyone ever asking his views on "single payer, government funded" healthcare. He may already be for them, for all we know?
