Pass Single Payer in Connecticut

6 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

We urge you to cosponsor House Bill 5340: AN ACT ESTABLISHING A SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE PROGRAM IN CONNECTICUT. In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, where countless Americans - including thousands of Nutmeggers - have lost their health insurance, single payer, universal health care is more important now than ever. Experts have concluded that the state would save money should it make the switch to such a system, all Nutmeggers would be covered (health coverage would also be expanded to cover dental, vision, mental health, and long-term care), and it would eliminate out-of-pocket expenses such as copays and deductibles. All other modern industrialized nations guarantee health care as a basic human right, while we have the most expensive health care system with some of the worst outcomes. Professor Leonard Rodberg of Queens College has concluded that single payer would save Connecticut $1.475 billion a year. For these reasons, and many more, it is essential that we guarantee health care to all Nutmeggers as a right, and not a privilege for those who can afford it. Connecticut should be the health care capital of America, not the health insurance capital of America, which is why we once again urge you to cosponsor House Bill 5340: AN ACT ESTABLISHING A SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE PROGRAM IN CONNECTICUT.
