Here we go again with national health care reform. But given the large gap between policies favored by Californians and those of the GOP in Washington, D.C., there is every reason for the Golden State to chart it’s own health care course. —Michael Lighty writing for Center of Health Journalism, 03/17/17 More »
Medicare for All
Astronomical healthcare costs and lack of access continue to drive individuals, families and businesses past their breaking point while insurance companies continue to soak-up billions of healthcare dollars as millions of children's basic needs go unmet. NNU supports a Medicare for all healthcare system that requires each participating state to set up and administer comprehensive healthcare services as an entitlement for all, through a progressively financed, single-payer system, administered by the states.
Medicare has provided guaranteed healthcare for millions of American seniors for more than 51 years. It’s time we have a Medicare for all, single-payer healthcare system that would end health disparities, effectively control costs, and assure that everyone has equal access to an excellent standard of care.
