We are moving forward. After a great meeting in St. Louis (comprehensive report back coming soon!), we want to make sure you have the most up-to-date talking points on the legislation and our movement!
1) Find PNHP NY Metro Chapter talking points on the most recent legislative developments including the public option, the abortion amendments, and the mandates here.
2) You may have heard that there is a vote in the Senate this weekend on health care. This is not the final vote. That procedural vote will decide whether to bring that bill to the Senate floor and begin debate, and its approval relies on the votes of three wavering moderate Democrats. Read more here.
We still expect Senator Sanders to bring forward S 703 to the floor for a vote, and possibly an amendment to allow states to more easily implement single-payer systems. As soon as we know what the state amendment looks like, we will announce it to you.
3) We are working to build actions to create awareness of Human Rights Day on December 10th. We will be helping to organize actions at Senators offices in support of S 703 and the state ability to move to single-payer. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to organize an action near you.
