This year health reform is migrating from the national level to the states, with the exciting news that Vermont is on the brink of passing the first state single payer legislation in the country. Our annual fundraising gala for Mass-Care and the Universal Health Care Education Fund is coming up on Saturday, March 26, from 1 to 4PM at the Ryles Jazz Club in Cambridge!
Mass-Care and UHCEF along with the help of many of you was able to put single payer questions in the ballot in 14 representative districts this past election cycle—winning in all 14 districts. In 2011 the state legislature will take up most cost control, and Mass-Care and UHCEF will play an active role in advocating for single payer as the only truly effective cost control measure, and will support the introduction of a public health insurance option for Massachusetts.
Thank you so much for your continuing support. We hope to see you on March 26 at the Ryles Jazz Club for inspiration and fun!
