“This Plan is Your Plan, This Plan is My Plan” (with a tip o’ the hat to Woodie Guthrie)

This plan is your plan / This plan is my plan

From Mendocino / To Escondido

Healthcare for all is / All we’re asking

This plan was made / For you and me.

 

Oh, single payer / It is a great plan

It covers health care / Throughout our life span

The status quo? Whoa! / It’s gotta go!  So…

This plan was made for you and me.

 

Billions we’ll save on /Administration

We’ll lower costs through / Negotiation

With what we save we’ll / Treat every patient

This plan was made / For you and me.

 

Our politicians / Often resists change

‘Cause contributions/ They like to a-rrange

They dine with corporate chums / And then throw us the crumbs

This plan was made for you and me.

 

We’ve got the money / Don’t doubt it honey

But so much flows to / Insurance companies

We’re gonna pool our wealth / Invest it in our health

This plan was made / For you and me.

 

It covers dental / It covers vision

For all our children/ And men and women

No need for co-pays / Farewell deductibles!

This plan was made/ For you and me.

 

It’s all-inclusive / It’s universal

It really isn’t / So controversial

Now we pay more for less / We’re tired of this mess!

This plan was made / For you and me!
