Every AFM Local in California has endorsed SB 562, which will create a Single-Payer “Medicare for All” program that includes dental, vision, reproductive, and nursing care for all Californians. Unions continue to see the increasing costs of healthcare being shifted to workers. Money saved from lower healthcare costs can go to wages.
Insurers, lobbyists, and their corporate allies in the California Senate are pressuring state senators to vote down SB 562. Don’t let this happen!
(You can also remind your Senators that when they run for re-election in 2020, whether or not they supported Guaranteed Healthcare for All will factor heavily in your decision to vote for them.)
Our demand is moral: budgets reflect values and priorities. But it is also fiscally sound: we can cover everyone and save money by eliminating the profits, waste, and human misery of the health insurance industry.
Click here to call your State Senator today and tell them that we can’t delay the critical reform that our families and communities need and to vote YES on SB 562.
