Momentum for the campaign for universal, single-payer health care in New York State has been growing in the last two years. In the last three months alone, the New York Health bill has gained 26 more supporters in both chambers of the legislature, bringing the number of Assembly cosponsors to 74. Only two more cosponsors are needed to pass the bill that would bring a universal, publicly financed, and privately delivered health care system to the Empire State. This bill would save lives and money. Join a discussion about how this program would work and how the campaign is mobilizing for a vote before the end of May!

Organized by Physicians for a National Health Program-NY Metro and Healthcare-NOW! NYC
