With the passage of national healthcare legislation (the Affordable Care Act), 2013 presents both political challenges and opportunities for movement growth. Under the best case scenario, the Affordable Care Act will still leave 3 million Californians uninsured. The ACA will also deliver different levels of care to different classes of people and the insurance industry will still be stealing 20 billion dollars from Californians.
Both nationally and in California we are working to pass legislation that would deliver healthcare to everyone and exclude the insurance industry.
Come learn why single payer healthcare is so important. And enjoy a great meal!
