UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE BILLS
Red Berets for Medicare for All supports Whole Washington in their ballot initiative work. Whole Washington is an ambitious group of citizens and healthcare professionals, determined to bring universal healthcare coverage to Washington State through a ballot initiative. They (We) believe healthcare is a human right, which is why we are working to get all of our Washington State representatives to co-sponsor HR 676 and S. 1804 nationally. There are two bills in the Washington state legislature that Whole Washington supports as well:
- The revised Washington Health Security Trust HB 1026
- Creating the Washington Apple Care Trust SB 5701
But if these important bills don't pass, we are prepared to gather signatures to take the question to the people. Recent polls show that 64% of Washington state residents want medicare expanded to provide universal healthcare coverage to all Americans.
We will need A LOT of volunteers to get universal healthcare on the ballot. Please sign up to help out on their website: http://www.wholewashington.org/volunteer.
