With our national health care position as the basis, for more than a decade the LWVC has supported the movement in California to pass single payer health care. Beginning with single payer bill SB 2123 in 1998, the LWVC has consistently supported studies and legislation to pass single payer health care.
We are currently working to ensure that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act provides the best possible care for the most people. At the same time, we recognize that this is only a stopgap measure. We will continue to advocate to ensure that everyone in California has access to quality healthcare.
