California Guaranteed Health Care for All Act
Following the tabling of California Assembly Bill 1400- California Guaranteed Health Care for All Act, LACDP Chair Mark Gonzalez issued the following statement:
"Throughout this pandemic, we have been reminded that American families, especially families all across Los Angeles County, have been hit hard by a healthcare system that is profit-focused and not patient-focused. From the beginning, Los Angeles Democrats have been working side by side and led with the authors of AB1400 - the California Guaranteed Health Care for All Act - to let Californians know that we believe in a just and fair system that will not bankrupt individuals and families. While AB1400 has been tabled for now, we will continue to work with Assemblymembers Kalra, Santiago, Lee, all of the co-sponsors and activists to ensure that all the necessary components are included to make single payer healthcare a reality in California, and then the nation."
