Single Payer Health Care

 

Resolution 13-04.58

 

WHEREAS, the new health care system passed under President Obama is a step in the right direction and Single Payer Health Care or Medicare for Everyone would be a further improvement, and

WHEREAS, the advantage of Single Payer Health Care is that insurance companies along with their profits and overhead would be replaced by the federal government as the single payer for health care services as is now the case with Medicare, resulting in huge savings in health care costs, and

WHEREAS, Single Payer Health Care is not socialized medicine because the hospitals, doctors and other providers would not work for the government but would remain in the private sector,

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party supports a further evolution of our health care system into a Single Payer system, or Medicare for All, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party transmits this resolution to President Obama and to the Democrats in the California Congressional delegation and to all Democratic members of the California legislature.
