Ca. Assembly To Vote On SB 810 Single Payer Health Care

SB 810 TO BE VOTED UPON BY AUGUST 31 * PLEASE CALL 2 OR MORE ASSEMBLY MEMBERS TODAY

From http://www.singlepayernow.net/

Please call the Speaker of the Assembly John Perez and at least two other Assembly Members to urge a yes vote on SB 810, the California Universal Healthcare Act.

SB 810 would deliver comprehensive healthcare to everyone and it would save Californians tens of billions of dollars. It will do what the national health plan does not - cover everyone and contain health care costs. It will set the standard for the rest of the nation.

On Thursday, August 12, the Assembly Appropriations Committee sent SB 810 to Assembly for a vote. The vote will take place sometime before August 31.

The single payer movement has been an inspiration to the nation by passing SB 810 twice before in our legislature. We want to continue inspiring the nation by passing single payer healthcare a 3rd time.

Speaker John Perez can be reached at 916-319-2046. He is the first Speaker of the Assembly in 6 years to not be a co-author of SB 810. He needs to receive thousands of calls.

Our Assembly Member Wes Chesbro ( 707.445-7014 or 916.319.2001 ) is a co-author, so please call and thank him for co-sponsoring. It is important that legislators know we appreciate their efforts.
