Working Families Party aka ACORN Wants Universal Healthcare in New York


The Working Families Party (WFP) is a front group for the radical leftist organization ACORN just in case you are unfamiliar with them. They are strongly supported by Communist Party USA and have close ties with them. They are now calling for “free” socialized medicine for everyone in New York. The same false promises given to us by President Obama are now being used to sell people on the idea of an even worse system of healthcare.

New York, now Socialist in many locales, is an easy mark. If they get it in here, they can spread out.

They are pretending it’s Medicare for all but it’s more like Medicaid for all, only worse.

If you think Medicare sounds great, you need to speak to doctors who work with Medicare patients in what is becoming a charitable venture. Doctors get paid between $12 and $100 for a visit. Subtract all the incredible paperwork for Medicare and many doctors lose money.

I have spoken with medical clerks who say the situation is getting worse. My friend is a physician’s assistant and she said her office isn’t getting paid. The slightest excuse causes them to refuse payment.

My elderly aunt can no longer get her medicines and has been turned down for all elective procedures. The doctors wouldn’t even X-Ray her foot – but once – when she broke it because they don’t get reimbursed separately.

Medicare is great if you’re not sick and don’t need costly medicines.

The email below was sent from WFP says that “injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane” but what they are proposing is nothing more than a system of control which will provide everyone but the rich with bad healthcare.

This is Communism and people need to start paying attention.

Do you remember how much the Tea Party hooted and hollered about “socialized medicine” during the fight over Obamacare.What do you think they’ll do if we try to pass ACTUAL socialized medicine? A Medicare-for-all style, single-payer, everybody-in, nobody-out healthcare plan for every New Yorker? With no premiums, no insurance company red tape, no big CEO pay, no profit, and paid for by progressive taxes on the rich?

What would the Tea Party say? Will their heads explode? We’re about to find out.

Contribute $3 to help us launch our campaign for a Medicare-for-all style healthcare plan for New York.

Today, I was proud to stand with Assemblymembers Gottfried and Perkins at the launch of the New York Health campaign, new legislation for truly universal healthcare for every New Yorker.

Don’t get me wrong – for all its flaws, I supported Obamacare. It was huge step forward. Ending pre-existing conditions. Covering millions of young people and low-wage workers. And it was what was able to pass Congress.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t do better – a lot better – in New York State.

After all, Buffalo is just as cold as Toronto – shouldn’t the healthcare be just as good?

I think so. If you agree, help us launch our campaign:

New York Health plan would enshrine healthcare as a basic right. Everybody in. Nobody out. That’s an incredible statement of humanity and dignity for all.

PS. As Dr. King said: “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” Let’s win this.
