    Julie speaking into a bullhorn at a rally, wearing a blue \For my birthday on July 19, this year, I invite you to please contribute below on my behalf to help support the work of the NY Metro Chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program. I have served on the Board of Directors since 2022 and I can't say enough good things about the work that the NY Metro Chapter has done over the past two years in support of the NYC municipal retirees as we fight to keep our public Medicare benefits.

    Please contribute what you can below to help support the work of our chapter to defend traditional public Medicare and organize for truly universal, comprehensive healthcare - care that we all so desperately need!

    We urge the New York State Assembly and Senate to enact Assembly bill A. 5062 (Gottfried)/Senate bill S. 3525 (Perkins)

    WHEREAS, Every person in New York State and in all the United States deserves access to affordable, quality health care; and

    WHEREAS, There is a growing crisis in health care in the United States of America, manifested in rising health care costs, increased premiums, out-of-pocket spending, decreased international business competitive-ness, and massive layoffs; and

    WHEREAS, As of May of 2009, approximately 2.6 million New Yorkers lack health insurance; and

    WHEREAS, Those uninsured now often experience unacceptable medical debt and sometimes life threatening delays in obtaining health care; and

    WHEREAS, Sixty percent of all personal bankruptcies are linked to medical bills; and

    WHEREAS, The increasing expense of Medicaid and the rising costs of insuring state employees and teachers can best be met not by limiting benefits, but by eliminating the administrative waste and profiteering created by the private health insurance industry which consumes approximately 30 percent of the United States’ health care spending; and

    WHEREAS, the New York State Legislature appropriated funds for a state-sponsored cost benefit analysis of the various ways the state could provide health care to all its residents. The Governor's report concluded while providing universal comprehensive quality health care, a single-payer system is the only plan that would reduce health spending billions annually by 2019 below projected levels; and

    WHEREAS, Senator Perkins and Assemblyman Gottfried have introduced the New York Health bill, A. 5062 / S. 3525, which if implemented would provide a universal, comprehensive, single-payer system of high quality health insurance for all New Yorkers with their choice of medical provider regardless of their health, income or employment status; and

    WHEREAS, In adopting a state single-payer plan, New York would be following the path being pursued in other states such as Vermont and California to develop universal health care alternatives to the recent federal legislation which is expected to maintain costly private insurance that does not end medical bankruptcies and denials of necessary care, now, therefore, be it

    RESOLVED, That the New York State legislature be and hereby is respectfully memorialized to enact A. 5062 / S. 3525 the New York Health bill.
