Stop your legislators and the Governor from destroying Washington’s health care safety net!

This week, the Legislature decided to rip a hole in our health care safety net that will take us years and maybe even decades to repair. The House and Senate budgets will leave at least 150,000 more people without access to health care, kick tens of thousands of people off Basic Health, abandon our most vulnerable citizens in the most desperate of times, overwhelm your community’s hospital emergency rooms and health clinics, and cut the resources to cope with the impact.

Make no mistake: these cuts will fuel a long-term health care crisis in this state and drive up costs for everyone.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
