AJR4 clears Assembly Health Committee

The California Assembly’s Health Committee just passed Assembly Joint Resolution 4 (AJR4), a resolution asking Biden to discontinue the privatized ACO/REACH Medicare program, by a vote of 12-3. The resolution was introduced by Assemblymember Pilar Schiavo and Sen. Mike McGuire at the request of CARA, the California Alliance of Retired Americans. The health committee members were lobbied by the Movement to End the Privatization of Medicare under the leadership of Dr. Ana Malinow, as well as PNHP-CA, HCA (Health Care for All), and other social justice organizations of seniors and disabled people. The response was so strong that activists were asked by CARA to stop calling the committee members! 

  The resolution, and our efforts to pass it, move on to the General Assembly, and then to the Senate.
