Every Citizen Entitled to Quality Health Care

Mom, child and doctor.We believe that every Citizen is entitled to quality health care & that single payer universal health insurance is a right not a privilege.

Dear Chairperson of the Progressive Caucus:

On Saturday, January 15th, 2010, a presentation was made by Ahjamu Makalani and Dr. Olson to my community group, RCUC (Riverside County United Communities) regarding health care for all.

Mr. Makalani gave a brief history of the subejct matter and introduced Dr. Olson. His information was enlightening and provided a historical perspective, and his enthusiasm was contagious. I personally was unaware of the origins of the concept of universal health care, although I was aware of it in other countries, such as Canada. Dr. Olson’s presentation was heartfelt and sincere, with a deeply personal connection, which reached out to us. I feel I can speak for the group in saying that the material made a deep connection with all of us, and much support was generated. Many of my friends came up to me afterward and asked from where I knew these people. They were very excited and the president, Garry Grant, asked them if they would return to speak to us again.

I feel this is an issue that needs to be explored and its cause championed, which I have done since the presentation. I feel better able to present an informed viewpoint and state reasons why this is needed and why it would work.

Thank you,
