As the Affordable Care Act rolls out, it’s becoming clearer that we need to get rid of the health insurance companies.  Real health reform is improving Medicare and expanding  it to cover everyone,  sometimes known as Single-Payer healthcare.

Claudia Chaufan, of Physicians for a National Health Plan, will show how Obamacare is shifting more costs onto patients, especially as employer requirements and patient protections are being postponed.

Gordon Mar, of Jobs with Justice, will show how local employers are using Obamacare to try to reduce their obligations to support Healthy San Francisco.

Jodi Reid, of CARA and the Campaign for Healthy California, will talk about opening up a new labor-based campaign for Single-Payer, Medicare-for-All healthcare.

Discussion will follow.

All Welcome.  Wheelchairs OK.
