This is the petition intro text, it should encourage people to sign the petition
Dear New York State Senate --
In 2015, 2016, and 2017 the New York State Assembly passed the New York Health Act with overwhelming support. Now we need the New York State Senate to do the same. New Yorkers support the New York Health Act.
If passed, the New York Health Act (A. 4738 / S. 4840) will implement truly universal health care and eliminate financial barriers to care, while allowing people to go to the doctor and hospital of their choice. Like the rest of the industrialized world, it will give New Yorkers access to health care without fear of bankruptcy. It will treat health care as a human right, not a commodity for those who can afford to pay.
New Yorkers support truly universal publicly financed health care.
Thank you for your leadership in the New York State Senate on this important issue.
