A single-payer health care system is the best way to provide all Californians with their right to live healthy lives. I am a co-author of SB 840, sponsored by State Senator Mark Leno.

It is a travesty that we pay far more per capita on health care than any other country in the world, and yet nearly one-seventh of all Californians goes without any health insurance. Too many Californians remain either underinsured or uninsured. Therefore, we still need to aggressively advance a program that maximizes affordable healthcare coverage until we achieve single-payer health care.

On the national level, I support efforts by President Obama and the Congress to pass meaningful health care reform.
