    I strongly urge you to vote in support of CalCare, AB 1400. Healthcare is a right and every elected official in the state should strongly support universal coverage.

    A super-rich state in the richest country on the planet, should not have its residents die due to preventable and easily treated diseases. The pandemic has shown that healthcare rationing cost lives in the most vulnerable communities of color, seniors, people in poverty, and people with disabilities. We can and MUST do better because healthcare is a human right. Please vote to support AB1400 for desperately needed equitable, quality healthcare for ALL Californians.

    By taking the profiteering out of health insurance, and the excess gains from the pharmaceutical and medical equipment industries, we can afford to cover everybody. Premiums, co-pays and deductibles are like a private tax, and would be eliminated with AB 1400.

    AB1400 provides for guaranteed health care for all California residents. It would provide health care benefits that are comprehensive, covering all medically necessary health needs.
    The City of San Jose would see a reduction in expenses for negotiating and managing employee health plans.
    City employees would have 100% covered, comprehensive health care, for both full-time and part-time employees and their families.
    Vote YES to move the AB1400 memo forward.

    As a small business owner for 34 years, the biggest concern/expense was obtaining/providing decent healthcare for myself and our employees. With our average 3 employees, we're at a disadvantage with purchasing and the type of insurance we're to able to provide. We've ended up having to get premiums with large deductibles and limited care.
    With a Single Payer landscape, small businesses will be able to be in a level playing field with bigger companies giving us a larger pool of applicants.
