Dear Members of the Cañada Crescenta Democratic Club Healthcare Action Team,I hope you are all well.
Although the official text of the Medicare for All Act of 2019, HR 1384 is not on Congress’ website yet, here is a summary from Physicians for a National Health Program, their leaders have worked with Pramila Jayapal regarding the bill.
At the state level, last Friday was a deadline for California legislators to submit legislation. The California Nurses’s Association had been working with state senator Mike McGuire about carrying a bill this year but he said he did not have enough support from other legislators. So currently there is no legislation for a state Medicare for All type bill like we had in 2017 with the Healthy California Act.
