Single Payer Advocates Launch New Health Care Alliance
Leading Labor Groups, Community Organizations, Student Organizations and Religious Organizations Join Together to Announce Major New Campaign
WASHINGTON - January 28 - An alliance of major organizations including labor unions, large community-based membership groups, religious organizations, nurses, doctors, students and activists will launch The Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care on Wednesday, January 28.
The member organizations lay claim to a membership base of more than 20 million people.
The Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care believes that high-quality health care is a right of all people and should be provided equitably as a public service. A single payer national health program would eliminate the wasteful role played by private health insurance companies and as a result is the most cost-effective and efficient way to achieve health care for all in the U.S.
