Today's single payer post: resolutions of support
Thank you Supervisor Tom Ammiano, CNA/NNOC endorsed candidate for State Assembly, for holding hearings to support HR 676, Medicare for All, on June 10th at 2pm. It is time local elected's take a stand on the only real solution to financing our health care system in the nation. Meanwhile, San Francisco's Mayor Newsom has introduced sweeping budgets cuts to Public Health including lay-offs and loss of 8 days of pay for all health workers including nurses. Threatening, "He will remember" if we do not take the furloughing agreement, to save our services, he is also cutting funding for the homeless in the city's poorest district.
U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., got some support from Hamtramck on Tuesday night for his efforts to enact a national universal health care program.
After Conyers addressed Hamtramck City Council during its regular meeting, the members voted unanimously to support legislation sponsored by Conyers and other congressmen.
