Rally Against Republican Health Care Plans that go Straight for the Jugular and Would Leave Us Hemorrhaging and Fight Like Hell for Medicare for All!

Whether the Republicans pass a version of TrumpCare, or work to sabotage
Obamacare one thing is perfectly clear that health care should be a universal
right, whether called single-payer or Medicare for all, and that until we
implement such a system our lives are in jeopardy.

So, Building Bridges is broadcasting an Emergency Health Care Rally which was held in NYC recently sponsored by NY Health Care for All and Local 1199. Tune into the rally and listen to health care professionals and we the people as we mobilize for all of us to call on our Senators and Representatives to oppose bills in Congress that would gut the Affordable Care Act, decimate Medicaid, place Medicares finances in jeopardy, end family planning funding, and weaken or eliminate important consumer protections in health insurance. Taken as a whole, these bills will blow-up our insurance markets, threaten the viability of many of our hospitals and community health centers, and leave many millions uninsured.

WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN!

Listen as we mobilize for Medicare for All, a system in which a single public or quasi-public agency organizes health care financing, but the delivery of care remains largely in private hands. Under a single-payer system, all residents of the U.S. would be covered for all medically necessary services, including doctor, hospital, preventive, long-term care, mental health, dental, reproductive health care, vision, prescription drug and medical supply costs. The program would be funded by the savings obtained from replacing todays inefficient, profit-oriented, multiple insurance payers with a single streamlined, nonprofit, public payer, and by modest new taxes based on ability to pay. Premiums would disappear; 95 % of all households would save money.
Patients would no longer face financial barriers to care such as co-pays and
deductibles, and would regain free choice of doctor and hospital. Doctors would regain autonomy over patient care.

Attend our virtual rally and together well fight for the Medicare for All Act, H.R. 676, which would establish an American single-payer health insurance
system.
