Health Care for All

November 2009
Dear President Barack Obama, Senator Harry Reid, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Members of Congress:
Like you, we care about this country’s health. We agree with Grandma Yi, who dreams of the day when anyone can confidently seek medical care. Please stand strong for all of our states’ residents, parents, small business owners and workers, youth, volunteers and seniors, to live healthy lives. It is time to pass health reform legislation that includes all human beings. The longer we wait, the more it will hurt our families, and cost our businesses and government. We should not make people wait five years to seek medical care when they are working in low-wage jobs. Let’s support all families and children:
  1. Make the federal government pay their fair share by removing their five year bar for legal immigrants in Medicaid and Medicare
  2. Make health reform affordable to everyone by allowing public access to purchase the public option in the new marketplace for health insurance
  3. Let everyone who subsidizes the health system to participate in it, and make informed health decisions, regardless of immigration status
