Healthcare is a human right. Guaranteed Healthcare for All means everyone has health insurance, even if they are unemployed. It also means mitigating the stubborn racial disparities in health outcomes that persist in our society due to the racial wealth gap and institutional racism. A single payer system is more possible in California than anywhere else in the country, as we have the fifth largest economy in the world. This crisis has showed us that we cannot afford to continue letting private health insurance companies dictate the quality and longevity of people’s lives.
Now, we have a chance to finally ensure healthcare for every Californian. Assembly Members Kalra, Lee, and Santiago have introduced AB 1400, "Guaranteed Healthcare for All" to establish a single payer system (CalCare) in California!
