Mission Statement of Retirees for Single Payer Health Care

Retirees for Single Payer Health Care is an organization of working class people dedicated to the passage of the Improved and Expanded Medicare For All Act (HR 676).  While we are mostly UAW Retirees, we welcome any working class people who agree with and are willing to work for this outcome.  We are dedicated to informing retiree organizations, in particular union retiree organizations, and others about HR 676.

We know that the President and Congress must be held responsible for the crisis in healthcare and for its solution in this country.

We believe that solution is Medicare For All (HR 676):

Everybody In, Nobody Out Healthcare  - Gives every resident of the United States and the U.S. Territories access to all medically necessary health care services, including vision and dental as well long term care with no copays or deductibles regardless of employment, income or health status.  Private insurance companies may not duplicate coverage under this bill.

Non-Profit Healthcare - Converts all healthcare providers to a not-for-profit service where illness is no longer a source of wealth for a few.

Single Payer Healthcare – Medicare today is a social insurance program for those 65 or older and the disabled under 65.  Medicare for All improves and extends that social insurance program to all of us. This gives us all the collective ability to control the out of control costs of the healthcare industry in this country.  Pays for that expanded coverage by maintaining the present level of federal government revenues for Health Care as well as increasing personal income taxes on the top 5 percent income earners, instituting a modest and progressive tax on payroll and self-employment income, on unearned income, and on stock and bond transactions.

To this end we believe that we must Educate Ourselves, Demonstrate Our Resolve, and Learn From Our Experiences.

RETIREES FOR SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE
‘There was no formal interview like I imagined but the day turned out to be even better.  There was lots gumbo ya-ya about politics then (60s) and now with a bunch of us sitting around a conference table eating what had to be KFC.  There were a few people there from a group called Retirees for Single Payer Healthcare, most of whom were north of 60.  They spent a good 15 minutes arguing what commerce would look like in a post capitalist society as if this new arrangement was coming next month and they were teenagers planning out the rest of their lives.  It was a freedom dream in motion with General Baker at the helm – a powerful lesson in hope.’  Robyn Spencer, from “Rest in Power, General Baker”
