MEDICARE FOR ALL MARCH LA

SUNDAY, JULY 23 @ 11:00 AM2:00 PM

EVENT NAVIGATION

Healthy California Pride

With the repeal of the flawed and partially defunded ACA on the horizon, and the abhorrent plans to replace it with something that is not care, but a tax cut for the wealthy, it’s time to let Congress know we wish to have health care for all people like all other modern industrialized nations.

It’s very likely that they won’t make a decision on #Trumpcare until the end of session in Congress, which is why we need to make our voices heard across the country to tell our elected officials that the option is Medicare for all in the U.S. and more specifically, CA.

Let us also send a message to California Speaker Anthony Rendon —> stop blocking healthcare for all & let the Assembly VOTE on SB 562 – the single-payer health care bill!

We will be meeting at

Hollydale Park in South Gate (parking available) and marching to Rendon’s South Gate district office for a rally.

CAN’T GO and/or WANT TO DO MORE?

Here are 2 ways you can help SB 562 move forward!

As you know, on June 23rd Speaker Anthony Rendon chose to stall SB 562, putting it on hold in the Assembly Rules Committee instead of moving it forward to a committee for a hearing, vote, and where amendments could be made. Last Friday, July 14, was the last day Speaker Rendon could move the bill forward under the regular Assembly timeline rules…and he didn’t. But we are far from done. Speaker Rendon still has the power to move the bill forward until mid

September by suspending the regular rules.

This means SB 562 is still alive and well but needs your help to make sure Speaker Rendon and our Assemblymembers choose guaranteeing healthcare and ending the suffering so many Californians experience from crushing medical debt and lack of access to healthcare.  Our incredible grassroots movement has the power to move this bill by moving our elected leaders.

1. Call your Assemblymember Until They Join the Fight for SB 562!

Many Assemblymembers are saying they “support Single Payer” but have not signed on to co-author SB 562. It’s time start calling them until they do!

Script:  “Insurance companies continue to be a middleman profiting off healthcare as Californians suffer. The Healthy California Act (SB 562) would remove the insurance middleman and save $37 billion a year while guaranteeing medical, dental, vision and more. Do you support taking insurance compan

ies out of healthcare? Will you co-author SB 562 and support moving the Healthy California Act forward this year so we can?”
