Winning universal health care

Federal, state, local legislation to debut at January 26 forum

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

One of the consequences of 'the blue wave' that swept the country is renewed potential for significant health care legislation leading to a universal single-payer system.

Federal, state, and local legislation in that direction will be explained at a forum on Saturday, January 26, from 9:45 to 11:30 a.m., at El Centro de la Raza, Beacon Avenue S. and S. Lander Street.

Featured speakers will include the following:

o Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-7), who is offering a bill to enable states to construct and finance single-payer systems. Jayapal rocketed into the ranks of Democratic congressional leadership after her election in 2016, and is now the co-chair of the congressional caucus and co-chair of the new Medicare for All Caucus.

o Washington state Sen. David Frockt (D-46), the sponsor of Cascade Care, a public-option health insurance plan.

o State Sen. Joe Nguyen (D-34), and state Rep. Nicole Macri (D-43), both sponsors of important health care legislation in the current session.

o King County Councilmember Rod Demobowski and Seattle City Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda, who will discuss how municipal governments can provide health care for their residents.

The forum is presented by the Health Care is a Human Right Coalition, a group organized by the Washington State Labor Council (WSLC), AFL-CIO. WSLC represents 600 union locals and labor organizations with some 450,000 members.

In addition to the WSLC, the forum is sponsored by Washington CAN!, Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action, Health Care for All - WA, Seattle Indivisible, and Northwest Health Law Advocates.

El Centro de la Raza is located across the street from the Beacon Hill light rail station and on Metro routes 36 and 60.
