In early June, the California Senate passed Senate Bill 562, the Healthy California Act, but it passed without details on how to pay for it. A few weeks later, it was shelved by the California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. He said, "We have never found a funding source. All the other details that were missing made it woefully incomplete."

Your Call: California leading the fight for single-payer health care

Jun 7, 2017

  

Will California make single-payer healthcare a reality? On June 1st the state Senate voted in favor of single-payer health care.

On the July 27th edition of Your Call, we'll mark the 50th anniversary of this landmark government program by discussing its achievements and challenges.

On the June 29th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the ACA’s federal subsidies.

On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about single payer healthcare. Earlier this year, Senate Bill 810, which would have paved the way for universal health care coverage in California failed to pass. How would the plan work? Join us live at 10am PST or post your comments here.  Do you support healthcare for all? What will it take to get there? It’s Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.
