Medicare For All needs our help, so let's create a Health Caucus in the HI Dem Party
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
We want Universal Single Payer Health Care, aka, Medicare For All, but, congress needs persuasion, Governor Ige needs persuasion, so, let's up our organizing game by making a Health Caucus in the Hawaii Democratic Party.
If Democratic Parties in all states form a health caucus aimed at getting HB676, Medicare For All, passed, we might create the enthusiasm the democratic party needs to do something we all want, and then based on that success, retaking congress in 2018 could become a possibility. I'm not sure how appealing the democratic parties current theme is: "the ACA is as good as it gets, don't ask for what the rest of the world has, just oppose republicans, and keep voting for us."
With a Health Caucus, we can better represent people who are suffering from the economic injustice of our current 'private insurance' model of Health Care.
Universal Health Care will wipe away many of the hardships currently faced by people with disabilities, rare diseases, who have low income, and might be a senior citizen.
It will significantly lower the cost of health care while improving the delivery of health care. Business will save enormously, and, Universal Health Care makes Workers Compensation insurance unnecessary. Think about that; no more workers compensation insurance to pay for. Employees, when injured, just go to any doctor they want, without needing to prove that the injury was work related. http://www.pnhp.org/
