Support AB 2517, the California Single Payer Planning Commission, & AB 3087 Price Controls
“Healthcare Is Hard”
Single payer universal healthcare in California is difficult, but achievable. With AB 2517‘s Single Payer Planning Commission, we will hammer out the necessary state constitutional amendment, CMS waivers, cost controls, and regulatory structure as recommended in the Assembly Select Committee's report.
We are also supporting Asm. Ash Kalra's AB 3087, Maryland/Canada-style price controls. With the California lawsuit against Sutter for allegations of price gouging, and JAMA's peer-reviewed research showing our country's healthcare has prices twice as high as anywhere else, price controls are not only the educated choice, it is the moral choice. Price controls are the foundation of all successful single payer health systems in the world. AB 3087 is the perfect companion to AB 2517. Like chips and salsa.

HEY MAN, WHAT HAPPENED TO SB562?
Last year, SB562 was introduced, passed in the senate without funding on a simple majority vote, and was promptly shelved by the Assembly. It's been sitting in the Assembly Rules Committee since June.
