Support MediState - Make State Run, Single Payer Heathcare A Reality In New York

This petition had 32 supporters

Health care in this nation is in crisis. Picked apart by partisanship, lobbyists, and special interests, Obamacare, while helpful to many, has fallen far short of fulfilling the lofty health insurance promises it was envisioned to provide. Now, a federal government committed to the dismantling of Obamacare, if it cannot repeal and replace it, threatens to further erode access to heath care for the two thirds of U.S. citizens not covered by Medicare or Medicaid. Senator Sanders' dream of a "Medicare For All" national single payer healthcare system seems more remote than ever.

But all is not lost. In the vacuum of a stagnated, stalemated, and dysfunctional federal government, states newly emboldened by recent successes in opposing federal mandates of both Republican and Democratic origins, are poised to reassert their sovereignty, and, as the Constitution intended, pass legislation to care for and protect their citizens. It is now more urgent than ever that New York State and other states embrace their role as laboratories for democracy to create a single payer healthcare system that can work for all Americans, everywhere. Let's get started.

MedistateNY is a proposal to establish in New York State a single payer healthcare system based on a “Medicare for All” philosophy that provides health care to EVERYONE; where every doctor… every hospital… every lab... and every pharmacy… is available to EVERYONE.
