Mimi Signor, who is dedicated to getting universal health insurance adopted, as well as life insurance for the elderly parents, sent this announcement:

The Missouri Universal Health Assurance Act, SB 1101, sponsored by Senator Joan Bray and cosponsored by Senators Days, Smith, Green and Justus was heard and passed by the Senate Health and Mental Health Committee and is on the Senate Calendar for perfection April 14. Now it is your turn to make Democracy work. Citizens must contact their Senators immediately to vote for single payer, universal health care for all Missourians. Wealthy lobbies will be working overtime to manipulate this into a for-profit vehicle to perpetuate the unacceptable status quo.

Uh-oh. The 14th is Monday. Call early.
