We have until June 19th to #PassNYHealth!
The New York Health Act [A5248] is now stuck in committee in the Assembly. Here is what you can do to help. We need you to help us get the message to the Assembly and Senate that this must
1) Assembly: Contact your Assembly Member and tell them it is time to request Speaker Carl Heastie to move to the floor to be passed for the fifth year in a row. Calling your Assembly Member will have the biggest impact on making your voice heard.
2) Senate: Contact your Senator and tell them it is time to request Senate Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins #PassNYHealth for the first time to show they are standing with the people of New York who are desperate for healthcare they can afford.
If passed, New York Health will provide comprehensive, universal health care for every resident. This plan is more generous in benefits than any existing private or public plan -- including coverage of long-term care. Because it takes out the profit-hungry middleman in healthcare, it costs less! Savings can go to increased wages for the first time for workers who have been trading wage increases for healthcare costs. We can make sure everyone has access to high quality care by #PassingNYHealth.
