Today on Your Call: What can we learn from states working to pass single payer?


On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about single payer healthcare. Earlier this year, Senate Bill 810, which would have paved the way for universal health care coverage in California failed to pass. How would the plan work? Join us live at 10am PST or post your comments here.  Do you support healthcare for all? What will it take to get there? It’s Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.
