LETTER: Urge lawmakers to support single-payer, Glenn Sanders, Schenectady Daily Gazette

The New York Health Care Act (Senate bill S4840) has already passed in the state Assembly and is within one vote of majority support in our Senate. This law would get private insurance companies out of the health care system.
Proper health care is a matter of public safety every bit as much as national defense, national security, and police and fire protection. Imagine if you had to navigate and pay for a mish-mash of private interests in order to get insurance for those things.
