PDA has advocated for universal health care since our founding. In California, this is our moment! The Healthy California Campaign, of which we have been a part since its founding, now has its bill SB 562, and its Financial Study which proves we will guarantee healthcare to all Californians and save money! And the Campaign has a spanking new poll showing Californians want this - two great talking points for your Senator.
Finance study released today shows SB 562 saves $74 Billion on healthcare
FROM THE CAMPAIGN:
Today we released the fiscal analysis for the Healthy California Act - SB 562 (Lara & Atkins) – that shows we can save 74 billion dollars a year while guaranteeing healthcare for all! We also released a recent poll showing SB 562 is wildly popular, with 81% of Californians saying we should ensure healthcare for all and 70% saying that the Healthy California Act is the right way to do it.
Your Senator could vote on the bill tomorrow and needs to hear from you today (AND tomorrow).
Please call 855-271-8515 now to connect to your Senator and ask them to co-sponsor SB 562 and share this good news:
- Healthy California would save $74 billion on our current healthcare system...and cover everyone!!!
- Low and middle income households would save almost 10% on healthcare.
- ALL businesses would save money and small businesses currently paying for healthcare would save up to 22%!
