SB 17 would require pharmaceutical companies to publish reports on how the money they charge for drugs is spent. But PhRMA -- Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, a group representing corporations such as Bayer, Merck, and Pfizer -- is trying to stop the bill in its tracks.
California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon just put the Healthy California Act on hold, delaying a critical proposal that would have guaranteed health coverage for every resident of our state. The Speaker has until this Thursday to reverse his decision, so he needs to hear from us now.
Trumpcare would take health insurance away from 23 million people, destroy Medicaid, defund Planned Parenthood, increase premiums for seniors, force low-income people to go without care, and punish those with pre-existing conditions. Yet Senate Republicans continue to keep the bill hidden while pushing for a vote that could destroy millions of lives.
The California State Senate Appropriations Committee just passed single-payer! This was the last step before it's voted on by the entire Senate. But the bill must be passed on the Senate floor by June 2. And your State Senator needs to hear from you!
If Trumpcare passes, 24 million people would lose access to affordable health care. And millions of people with health insurance would be at risk of losing coverage for pre-existing conditions. That's not right. It's not decent. And it's not American.
Every Californian deserves high-quality, guaranteed health care. But even under the Affordable Care Act, over three million Californians are left out and still lack health insurance. They’re our parents, children, grandparents, neighbors, co-workers, and community members.
While Republicans threaten to cruelly rob 24 million people of lifesaving health care, Courage Campaign is working to pass a bill to guarantee health care for all Californians. The Healthy California Act would curb rising health care costs, and, most importantly, save lives.
If Trumpcare passes, 24 million people would lose access to affordable health care. Older Americans would pay much more for health insurance -- 5 times as much as younger people -- but get way less help paying for insurance because of a $600 billion tax break for the ultra-rich and a $400 million giveaway to insurance executives. It's completely unacceptable.
Trumpcare, or the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was just released to the public -- and, unsurprisingly, it does exactly the opposite of everything Trump promised it would.
We will not sit by quietly while Donald Trump dismantles our rights. The Courageous Resistance is hitting the streets of Washington D.C. on January 21 with thousands of feminists and declaring our resistance to the pussy-grabber-in-chief!
