Congressman Adam Smith Endorses I-1600!

Thank you, Congressman Smith! 

"It is critical that we pass universal healthcare now. In our state, 522,000 residents are uninsured and many more desperately need relief from the high premiums, outrageous deductibles and copays that come with private health insurance. It is for this reason I have endorsed I-1600 and encourage every voter to sign the I-1600 petition."
