You can be the Healthcare Heroes of the entire nation, by proving that we can provide care to all, state by state. New York's elected officials need to lead the charge for all Americans by passing the NY Health Act S4840.
We cannot wait for Washington D.C., Rep. John Conyers, or Sen. Bernie Sanders to pass legislation that will fix health care for the nation. We need to solve this problem at the state level. Seventeen states have legislation to enact universal, single-payer health care for all of their residents. New York has a responsibility to pass this legislation now, before the session ends June 21st, as it has national ramifications on both the conversation as well as the actualization of Single Payer all over the country.
We, the undersigned, ask Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York Legislature to be heroes for our country and lead us into a better, healthier, future.
