Legislature to Hold Hearing on Single Payer Healthcare
Members of the Realities coalition look forward to educating the public about the problems with the New York Health Act
The sponsors of single payer healthcare legislation announced that they will be holding one public hearing to examine the impact the New York Health Act would have on the State. The hearing will take place Tuesday, May 28th in Albany.
Members of the Realities of Single Payer coalition look forward to the opportunity to provide testimony and participate in thoughtful and educated discussions about how best to ensure access to affordable healthcare for everyone without taking away patient choice, cutting jobs and increasing taxes. Forcing an expensive, one-size-fits-all, government-run system on all New Yorkers is the wrong approach.
We also encourage the Legislature to hold public hearings throughout the state to fully understand the impact of the legislation in all regions.
