Established in 2009, One Payer States (OPS) is dedicated to advancing America’s highest ideals in the pursuit of quality, comprehensive, and guaranteed healthcare for everyone in America. Above all, we are dedicated to the concept that universal healthcare is a human right as stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948).
We see universal healthcare not only as a human right, but as an economic imperative that will rescue Americans and our nation from both a looming financial disaster and a public health crisis.
Our purpose is to assist and promote individual states in obtaining a statewide, universal, non-profit health plan in every state of the union. This effort will be the catalyst for an eventual improved and expanded single payer, “Medicare for All” health plan throughout our country and finally give us what has been fought for so long by most of our greatest Presidents and what is truly deserved by the American people.
But, let’s be frank! We can’t do this alone. We need everyone to do what they can to help us achieve this for our country. Our adversaries are cut-throat and they have a lot of money and not a lot of compassion for their brothers and sisters. It will take all of us giving what we can of our time and our money in order for us to take back our healthcare system from they who have denied us for so long. Please join the fight with us. You can start by finding a level of membership that feels right for you. Then take a look at our volunteer efforts and let us know do what you will help with. Or go to your state on our map and volunteer with a group in your state that needs a helping hand! We currently don’t have any Presidents fighting for our healthcare and so we need you even more in order to succeed!
