State-Based Universal Healthcare
Suggested text of email to your Representative:
As your constituent, I am writing to encourage you to cosponsor Rep. Ro Khanna's new State-based universal healthcare bill, H.R.3775 - "To amend title I of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to authorize the establishment of, and provide support for, State-based universal health care systems that provide comprehensive health benefits to State residents, and for other purposes."
Healthcare costs per person in the USA are about double what other nations pay, yet our outcomes are mediocre at best. Despite the massive spending by taxpayers and employers, the USA languishes behind dozen of other nations in key areas including: infant mortality, life expectancy, work days lost to illness, medical bankruptcies, un- and under-insurance rates, and many others.
Only a guaranteed universal health plan will deliver the care we need while containing costs. A SBUHC will save lives and save money—for the USA, the states, employers, and individuals as patients and as taxpayers.
