A Presentation on the Breath Act

Health Care for All – LA will join the Muslim Delegates and Allies (MD&A) on Tuesday, March 2, at 6 PM (PST) as co-sponsors for a conversation with Dr. Melina Abdullah, co-founder of Black Lives Matter-LA, Gina Clayton-Thompson, founder and Executive Director of Essie Justice Group, and the co-author of the Breathe Act, and Chair of the Legislative Progressive Caucus, Assemblymember Ash Kalra to learn more about the visionary bill authored by Movement for Black Lives to divest our taxpayer dollars from brutal and discriminatory policing and invest in a new vision of public safety.

On Tuesday, we will remember Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Natasha McKenna, George Floyd, Aiyana Stanley-Jones, Elijah McClain, Pearlie Golden, Kayla Moore, Freddie Gray, Atatiana Jefferson, Oscar Grant, and honor the lives of those taken by state-sanctioned violence and Police. We will also discuss the role the Progressive State of California must play in order to ensure that this vision comes to reality.

HCA-LA leadership team member Hanieh Jodat will be joined by co-host Ben Hauck , Political Director of Public Bank LA and Nadia B. Ahmad , Chairwoman and co-founder of MD&A (Florida) to discuss a call to action.

FEBRUARY 25th AT 11:00 AM SOS is organizing a follow-up press conference and “car picket”
SOS is organizing a follow-up press conference and “car picket”Outside the kei-Ai Nursing home, also owned by Pacifica,  in Lincoln Heights.
SOS believes that Pacifica plans to transfer residents from Sakura Gardens, where there has been no documented case of COVID, to Kei-Ai, where tragically 111 residents have died from COVID.
The Feb. 25 protest will demand that Pacifica:
       (a) Not evict or transfer any seniors in their “Intermediate Care Facilities,” including at Sakura Gardens, during the pandemic; 
       (b) Stop all new COVID admissions at Kei-Ai.
HCA-LA supports the Feb. 25 SOS car care-a-van protest and we hope you can make it. Maureen Cruise will be speaking at the event to show our concern for this unethical and heartless treatment of Seniors and their families. Maureen will share how Single Payer could help prevent many of these abuses of the elderly by private for profit corporations. . Long term care for elders at our most vulnerable is something that every family faces. Each of us will most likely be in need of assistance some day. Every day
10,000 people turn 65. We must reform this system.  Now we must act. Please come and support the Kei-Ai residents and their families. Let’s show up in greater numbers for the “car picket” and honk even louder!
 
Event details are  in the attached flyer
Feb. 28, from 11am – 3pm.  SOS will be leafleting outside other Pacifica-owned senior care facilities in Southern California.
If you’d like to volunteer to leaflet, please email <saveourseniors@progressiveasians.org
SINGLE PAYER AB1400 – Let’s Get it Done!!
FEBRUARY 25th AT 5:00 PM
We’re excited to announce that the state single payer bill sponsored by the California Nurses Association, the California Guaranteed Health Care for All Act, was introduced in the State Assembly today.

To catch you up: California can create its own version of a Medicare for All system to guarantee high quality health care to every resident. This new bill in California, A.B. 1400, does just that. 
 
Nurses feel the urgency of this demand now more than ever, as the pandemic only worsened our deeply broken health care system. The nurses of CNA have fought for decades for guaranteed health care for all both in California and at the federal level, and that fight continues today.
 

Our mission is to pass this bill – and, in order to do it, we need your help Maureen. Will you RSVP for our emergency strategy call on Thursday, February 25, at 5:00pm PT to lay out the game plan to pass this bill?

 

There are 80 members of the State Assembly and 40 members of the State Senate. We need to make sure that every single member hears from their constituents and knows that Californians demand health care justice and are ready to lead the way for the rest of the country.  
 
This pandemic has made it abundantly clear that our current health care system is broken, and half-measure reforms are not enough. California can be the leader, but we’re up against some very powerful interests that will fight us tooth and nail to keep the status quo.But if supporters like you step up across all 58 counties in California, we know we can win. 
 

The fight for single-payer health care in California is not new – in 2017, a single-payer bill passed the State Senate but was stalled in the Assembly. Now with Democrats in control of both the federal and state governments, the urgency of an unprecedented health care crisis, and the determination of activists and organizers all across the state, we have a real pathway to victory.

 

Through this bill, we can put into place a health care system that guarantees health care to everyone in California regardless of health, immigration status, income, or anything else. 

No copays, deductibles, or premiums. No more in-network or out-of-network. Comprehensive medical services. The freedom to choose whatever doctor you want.
 
Together we can win.

“The COVID  difference: health care for profit or for the people?

COVID-19 cases and the failure to deliver enough vaccines into people’s arms. With 5,000 
body bags, dozens of refrigerated trucks ALREADY IN USE hospital gift shops, chapels and

to inept federal and local agencies. It shall get worse without a radical change in

“THE MYSTERIOUS MATH OF AMERICAN HEALTHCARE

Dr. David Belk explains the economics of our health insurance system by untangling and demystifying health care costs in this country. He has discovered, through his research, that the cost of most health care products in the US are both hidden and very deceptive—and that these deceptions are often used to take advantage of consumers. The results of much of his research can be found on his website http://truecostofhealthcare.org.  The Great American Healthcare Scam: How Kickbacks, Collusion, and Propaganda Have Exploded Healthcare Costs in the United States is Dr. Belks recent book .

FORCE THE VOTE TOWNHALL

  DECEMBER 30TH, 5:00 PM PST – 7:00 PM
Sign up for Wednesday’s Town Hall at forcethevote.org/town-hall.

Tens of millions of Americans are struggling without health care in the middle of a pandemic and we have a fleeting opportunity to bring Medicare for all to the floor of the House for a vote. Medicare for all is overwhelmingly popular and forcing the vote has enormous support in the progressive movement. 
We have invited progressive members of Congress to join us to discuss #ForceTheVote including: 
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Rep. Ayanna Pressley
Rep. Barbara Lee
Rep. Chuy Garcia
Rep. Cori Bush
Rep. Ilhan Omar
Rep. Jamaal Bowman
Rep. Jamie Raskin
Rep. Katie Porter
Rep. Marie Newman
Rep. Mark Pocan
Rep. Pramila Jayapal
Rep. Rashida Tlaib
Rep. Raúl Grijalva
Rep. Ro Khanna 

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 9TH AT. 1:00 PM

Last Chance

We’ve confirmed that there will be public comment for the last meeting of the Universal Health Care Work Group before they submit their report to the legislators. Apologies for the false alarm last time. The final meeting is next Wednesday 12/9, starting at 1:00 PM.

 

 

This time, we really need to hear from people outside of Seattle, people that have never testified before. We’ve had amazing support from champions in previous meetings, but it’s critical that we represent the whole state! Spokane, the Olympic Peninsula, central WA, Tacoma…we want your voice! What is our healthcare system doing to you and your family?

  • The public comment is in the first part of the meeting so you don’t have to stay the whole time.
  • Comments are usually 1 to 2 minutes long. 90 seconds is often where it lands.
  • Everything is on Zoom, so no traveling.
  • IMPORTANT: it’s urgent to sign up now, because they call commenters in the order of sign up.
 
If you’re interested, please respond to this email. I’d love to talk to you. Thanks for doing this incredibly important action.
