MISSION STATEMENT 

The mission of the Health Care Reform Committee is twofold. The first part of the mission is to educate members of the union about the health care crisis in the United States and the necessity of achieving universal health care. The second part of the mission is to advocate for a publicly funded universal health care system in the United States and to mobilize members to support a health care system that will preserve our benefits and ensure health care for every resident.

  • The Gottfried Bill Creating a Healthcare Commission:
    Over 250 diverse organizations from across New York [including the Professional Staff Congress] applauded the introduction of The Legislative Commission on Health Care Coverage Act of 2005 (A.6575) by [New York State] Assembly Health Committee chair Richard Gottfried. The Commission proposal is already co-sponsored by some forty members of the Assembly. It would establish a joint Senate-Assembly bipartisan panel to, over a two-year period, look at ways to expand quality health care coverage to all New York residents. The groups are seeking $500,000 in the State Budget to fund the Commissionís work.

    Americans are DYING for health care.  People in 70 cities and states are planning the first ever Citizen/Congressional Hearings called by citizens themselves. They want their Representatives in Congress to attend these hearings and hear their views on the failures of the profit-based health care system and to respond to solutions that would provide comprehensive health care for everybody.
