NY Unions Push for State ‘Medicare for All’ System

NY Unions Push for State ‘Medicare for All’ System

“We’ve never been this close,” Assemblymember Richard Gottfried (D-Manhattan), the bill’s sponsor, told LaborPress in early April. “That’s amazing.”More than 40 unions and labor groups have endorsed the bill.

New York, NY – As President Donald Trump mulls ways to sabotage Obamacare after the House Republicans’ failure to repeal it last month, New York State may be inching closer to having universal health care.

The New York Health Act, which would create a state-run Medicare-style single-payer system, now has 30 cosponsors in the state Senate, where it went nowhere after being passed by the Assembly in 2015 and 2016. All are Democrats or Independent Democratic Conference members. If a Democrat is elected to fill a vacant seat in Harlem next month, the bill would need only one Republican to gain a majority.

“We’ve never been this close,” Assemblymember Richard Gottfried (D-Manhattan), the bill’s sponsor, told LaborPress in early April. “That’s amazing.”

More than 40 unions and labor groups have endorsed the bill. They include the New York State AFL-CIO, 1199SEIU, Communications Workers of America District 1 and several locals, International Association of Machinists District 15, two locals of the International Association of Theatrical and Stage Employees, Teamsters Joint Council 16, the Long Island Federation of Labor, United Auto Workers Regions 9 and 9A, New York State United Teachers and United Federation of Teachers Local 2, and the Western New York Area Labor Federation.

The New York State Nurses Association has been campaigning for a single-payer system for more than 25 years; Gottfried credits the union with introducing him to the concept. It’s been offering members workshops on the issue since the ’90s, and cofounded the Campaign for New York Health, the umbrella group backing the bill, in 2014.

“We feel that health care is a human right,” says NYSNA treasurer Patricia Kane. “Everyone should have the same standard, and we need to figure out a way to do that.”

The union at first concentrated on lobbying the Assembly, but is now focusing on the Senate, says Steven Toff, director of state campaigns. After last November’s election, it began organizing in Rep. Dan Donovan’s Bay Ridge-Staten Island congressional district, including a town-hall meeting followed by a funeral procession to his district office. Its main purpose was to get Donovan to oppose repeal of the Affordable Care Act—he eventually became one of the few Republicans who did—but as the campaign progressed, Kane says, she saw more and more people at rallies with single-payer signs. There’s also a strong movement for single-payer in Albany, Syracuse, and central New York State, she adds.

The Committee of Interns and Residents, a 5,000-member SEIU affiliate, has been notifying its members about the legislation and organizing call-in days for them to speak to their state senators. It also joined with Physicians for a National Health Program for a rally and lobbying day in Albany Apr. 4.

The state’s largest health-care union, 1199SEIU, supports the New York Health Act and sent a contingent to Albany Apr. 4. But it’s been concentrating its political resources on defending Obamacare. “Our focus is in Washington until this particular fight is over,” says Helen Schaub, state director of policy and legislation. Despite the House Republicans’ failure to muster a majority for repeal, she told LaborPress, “we expect a number of defensive battles to come, including over continuing cost-sharing subsidies and the Medicaid budget.”

“Unions are trying to figure out how to both play defense and offense,” says Mark Dudzic, national coordinator of the Labor Campaign for Single Payer. “Unions have to figure out where to put their firepower.”

NYSUT and its higher-education affiliate United University Professions support the single-payer bill, but they both devoted their political resources to the state budget this spring. UUP’s priority, says President Fred Kowal, was trying to fend off budget cuts to the State University of New York—particularly its three teaching hospitals, where state aid has been slashed by 26% since 2010. On the other hand, he adds, those hospitals are a model for what a single-payer system could be.

Once the Affordable Care Act system was solidly in place, says Gottfried, the debate changed: Its supporters began discussing what it didn’t solve.

“I still see a lot of people who can’t afford insurance,” says Dr. Corrielle Caldwell, an emergency-room doctor in the Bronx and regional vice-president of CIR. They come in “with chronic conditions completely out of control.”

“While the ACA made great strides in decreasing the number of uninsured individuals and families, more must be done,” Andrew Pallotta, just elected NYSUT’s president, told the Assembly Health Committee in 2015. “Obtaining health insurance coverage is not the only obstacle to accessing health care; the out-of-pocket cost of using health insurance is another deterrent.”

Dudzic says the Republican attacks on Obamacare are “really raising interest in single-payer.” It’s a “wholistic” solution, as opposed to “piecemeal” efforts to fight Medicaid cuts or stem the erosion of employer-based coverage. With a similar bill introduced in the California legislature in March, he adds, there’s “a lot of momentum.”

The GOP’s criticisms of Obamacare’s subsidized health insurance—its rising costs, high deductibles, and “narrow networks” that drastically limit where people can get medical care—are actually arguments for “why single-payer works,” says Pat Kane. The Republican Party, she adds, “is not coming up with any workable solutions. We have one.”

Those shortcomings are another reason for labor support of single-payer. “For many years, health plans have been absorbing almost all union bargaining leverage,” says Gottfried. This leaves little room for negotiating better wages and pensions, and often results in concessions such as higher copayments, larger deductibles, and narrower networks.

On the other hand, unions that support the New York Health Act also worry about what it would take to implement it. “You can’t abolish an industry overnight,” Helen Schaub cautions, and if federal health funds are cut, designing a single-payer system without them will be much harder.

“It really is a ridiculous statement about our society that health care isn’t something everybody enjoys,” says Joseph Fontano, secretary-treasurer of Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union Local 338. But he does not want his members to end up having to pay more for coverage than they do now, whether in taxes or copayments.

“The concept is great,” he says, “but the devil’s in the details.”

The majority of New Yorkers already receive publicly funded health care, NYSNA’s Toff points out—from Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, the Veterans Administration, and government workers’ health coverage. Almost half the state’s people are on Medicare and Medicaid, he notes—“and that’s the sickest population.”

Convincing people that a single-payer system is practical “really is just a matter of explaining,” says Kane. “We’re talking a lot about how Medicare operates.”

The political obstacles remain. If the Assembly passes the bill, it will not make it to the Senate floor without at least some Republican support. And Gov. Andrew Cuomo, says Dudzic, “will be a problem if we make it through the Senate.”

Gottfried says the perception that single-payer is politically impossible—that everybody knows it’s the only health-care system that makes sense, but that “it will never happen”—has historically deterred supporters from investing much effort, but “we’re changing that story in New York.”

When CIR lobbied Republican state senators on Apr. 4, Dr. Corrielle says, they “didn’t meet complete resistance.” Cost was the GOP legislators’ main concern, but she says they “had a hard time denying” that small businesses would benefit and that a lot of money is wasted because people lack preventive care.

“As nurses, we look at the health outcomes,” says Toff. “As union members, we look at the costs. On both sides, it’s a much more effective and rational solution.

Single-Payer Health Care Is Seeing Record Support in Congress

Single-Payer Health Care Is Seeing Record Support in Congress

The primary Medicare for All bill has more support in Congress now than it has ever before.

John Conyers’ Medicare for All bill (HR 676), which he has introduced in each Congress since 2003, has seen a recent surge of new cosponsors — 32 since March 8 and nine on April 3 alone. As of this writing there are 93 co-signers (and counting), representing more than 48 percent of the Democratic Caucus. This is the highest number of cosponsors ever, both in terms of members and as a percentage of the House Democratic Caucus. The count is up from just 62 cosigners — 33 percent of Democrats — in the last Congress, and an average of 37 percent since the bill was first introduced in 2003 (see chart).

(Credit: PNHP)Click to open larger in a new window. (Credit: PNHP)This is an astonishing development for many reasons. Just a year ago the Democratic establishment was recklessly (and disingenuouslymaligning the policy to help keep Sen. Bernie Sanders from winning the Democratic Primary. Further, facing a large GOP majority, Democrats and activists have also been forced to “play defense” just to prevent Donald Trump and the GOP from kicking 24 million Americans off their insurance and doing away with essential benefits like mental health and emergency room visits. These, of course, are important benefits of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which improved access to health insurance, but leaves about 30 million Americans uninsured. The ACA also can’t control rapidly escalating health costs, a trend which has long been a central problem of our health system.

Indeed, the need for reform beyond the ACA is becoming increasingly clear. A Monmouth poll from February showed that 25 percent of Americans view health care as “the biggest concern facing their family right now.” Health care was, by far, the most cited concern, dwarfing issues like immigration (3 percent) and terrorism (2 percent).

Public support for Medicare for All has been confirmed by pollsters for years. An April 6 poll from the Economist/YouGov showed 60 percent of the public support for the policy, including from a plurality of Republicans.

The latest increase in support for Medicare for All, according to advocates, activists and congressional staffers who spoke with Truthout, can also be attributed to several other factors, including the unintended consequences of the TrumpCare debacle and the work of activists pressuring Democrats from the left. The impactful rise of Bernie Sanders, who plans on introducing his own Medicare for All bill in the Senate, has also been key. Plus, the end of Hillary Clinton’s campaign (and her role as the de facto head of the party), has led to more support for single payer, since she ran against the policy with such militancy — and lost.

There is still a long way to go. Republicans have an iron grip on Congress. The Senate is, by design, a major obstacle to progress and democracy. Plus, the drug and insurance industries retain immense influence. But the growing momentum for this reform has organizers hopeful that we are at a turning point — that a public universal healthcare system in the US may not be as far off as it once seemed. “I have been introducing the Medicare for All bill every session of Congress since 2003, and I’m the longest serving member of Congress,” Conyers said in a statement. “I have never seen more enthusiasm and energy behind this issue than what I’m seeing today.”

The Role of HR 676 in the Battle for Health Care Justice 

It has been 14 years since Conyers first introduced HR 676, officially called the Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act. The language is simple enough. “This bill establishes the Medicare for All Program to provide all individuals residing in the United States and U.S. territories with free health care that includes all medically necessary care,” and “only public or nonprofit institutions may participate.”

In a global context, this is not a particularly radical idea. Similar systems exist all around the developed world — they cover everyone and do it at about half the cost. While Conyers’ bill has never been scored by the CBO [Congressional Budget Office], there have been many studies that show tremendous savings from HR 676 and single-payer health care in general. Support for the bill, however, was quite limited, especially at first. Only 38 House Democrats (18 percent) cosponsored it when it was introduced. Eventually it gained more supporters, peaking at 93 in 2010 but this was back when Democrats had just won large majorities in 2006 and 93 sponsors only represented 42 percent of the caucus.

That was the high water mark until now, with less than a third of Democrats signing on to the law in the last two Congresses (113th, 114th). In essence HR 676 has served mostly as an organizing tool, widely used by advocates to help educate the public. But now that it has gained the support of half the caucus, its status is elevated: The bill is now viewed by many lawmakers as a viable path to reform. And activists continue to push for more support.

“Our goal is to get to 110 by the end of the recess [April 25th],” said Dr. Carol Paris, the president of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), in an interview with Truthout. “We think the enthusiasm and energy behind this bill reflect how much Americans care about this issue.”

The TrumpCare Debacle Helps Single-Payer

As noted above, the new energy behind this bill is due to something of a perfect storm of factors. One of the most important, advocates say, is the impact of the debate over a Republican repeal of the ACA, or TrumpCare. The entire process was an abject failure for Republicans, of course. But it also added to the anxiety of millions of Americans who were rightly indignant to learn that the bill would jeopardize the insurance — and indeed the lives — of tens of millions of Americans, and rip Medicaid to shreds. A March 23 Quinnipiac poll showed a paltry 17 percent of Americans supported the GOP plan, and only 41 percent of Republicans.

“There is a fire [that] has been lit under a lot of people, especially since the collapse of the Trump bill,” said Benjamin Day, executive director of single-payer advocacy group Healthcare-NOW, in an interview with Truthout.

As the debate over the GOP health reform plans took place, Democrats held numerous town halls, ostensibly with the noble goal of protecting the ACA. But, as Paris puts it, “voters weren’t there just to talk about the Affordable Care Act.” A Washington Post article about the GOP surrender on repeal observed that at town hall meetings “progressives in blue America celebrated — then asked for more.” Even getting Medicare for All mentioned in the dominant media is a victory, given their long record of ignoring the policy.

“At town hall meetings people continually asked Democrats about Medicare for All. I was at a meeting and as soon as it was mentioned the room erupted in applause,” Paris said. “Some Democrats wanted to keep the debate narrow and only talk about protecting the ACA. But people weren’t willing to let that stand.”

The scare TrumpCare put into Americans also brought to light a phenomenon known as “loss aversion.” The basics of this tendency, according to a March 24 New York Times article by Robert H. Frank, “is that the pain of losing something you already have is much greater than having gained it in the first place.”

“In the end, the repeal effort’s biggest hurdle may have been loss aversion, one of the most robust findings in behavioral science,” Frank said in the article, which is headlined “What’s Next After Obamacare, the Case for Medicare for All.” With Americans increasingly protective over their health insurance, the prospects for single-payer, which would guarantee them insurance — which the ACA fails to do — becomes a comforting thought to a public that, according to a Pew poll from January, believes that “the government should be responsible for ensuring health care coverage for all Americans.”

This is a reason why debate over cutting benefits in the ACA backfired on the GOP. The ACA has only gone up in popularity during the repeal effort. “The ACA has plenty of problems and is not universal. But, to its credit, if the ACA didn’t do anything else, it gave many Americans a sense that universal health care is possible,” Paris said.

Likewise, as Republicans debated the issue, the single-payer movement was benefiting. Advocates spoke of dramatic increases in the number of letters to the editor, web traffic and a pronounced uptick in social media interest. The Facebook page for PNHP, for instance, is now up above 50,000 members. Google Trends shows a dramatic spike in searches for “Medicare for All,” and “single-payer,” just as the GOP repeal bill was being debated in Congress (see image).

A Strategy Paying Off: Progressive Groups Pressuring Democrats 

Another major reason for the new support for Medicare for All is the energetic activist base that has grown out of the Sanders campaign and in reaction to Trump’s election. As Truthout recently reported, Democrats, to the chagrin of many in the establishment, have not been immune to pressure from activists. An important part of many organizations’ strategies is to try and elect as many left-leaning progressives to positions of political power, from Congress all the way down to animal control officer. Some groups, such as, are threatening corporate Democrats with the prospect of a primary opponent if they aren’t sufficiently strong on key issues.

Medicare for All is a key issue for many of these groups, which include Brand New Congress, Justice DemocratsNational Nurses UnitedProgressive Democrats of AmericaMedicare4All, and the Labor for Single-Payer coalition featuring unions across the country. Our Revolution, the organization launched by Sanders following his campaign, has not made endorsements for the 2018 elections, but will almost assuredly emphasize support for single-payer in selecting candidates. “We support creating a federally administered single-payer health care program,” the group clearly states on its page devoted to Medicare for All.

Brand New Congress, a group that aims to find progressive candidates for every seat in Congress that doesn’t already have one, has been very active in trying to “pressure Democrats into backing Medicare for all,” said cofounder Saikat Chakrabarti, in an interview with Truthout. They issued a petition citing the then “119 Democrats who are not supporting Medicare for All,” not long before this latest spike in support. Since then they have been able to cross 26 names off that list.

In addition to petitions and letter-writing there have also been several national days of action, including one on Saturday, April 8. Events like this have been drawing crowds and soliciting actions since Trump’s inauguration.

The Sanders Effect and the Coming Senate Legislation

Many of the organizations behind this effort were founded, and are largely made up of staffers and volunteers from the Sanders presidential campaign. And, there is no doubt that his campaign has been instrumental in educating and rallying the public behind this and other issues. Truthout has previously measured the considerable impact Sanders had on bringing attention to single-payer and in awakening class consciousness in many new people.

“I think his effect on the health care debate has been monumental,” said Ken Zinn, political director of National Nurses United, in an interview with Truthout. “When you have a major candidate talk about it at every single stump speech, it opens minds.” Zinn’s organization was a staunch supporter of the Sander’s candidacy for President and is rallying behind HR 676 and  state-wide single-payer in California.

Sanders will introduce his own single-payer legislation in the Senate in the coming weeks. Rep. Peter Welch, the lone Vermont member of the House (and one of the cosponsors to HR 676), has said he will issue a sibling bill in the House. Advocates are eager to see the specifics of the Sanders bill, and to discover which senators, if any, will cosponsor. Sanders has been on an island in his single-payer support since joining the Senate in 2006, and when he introduced legislation in the Senate previously, he failed to win over a single cosponsor.

But advocates are confident that, armed with his massive popularity and the collective momentum for the issue, he will find cosponsors this time. Several newer members of the Senate were cosponsors of Conyers’ bill when they were in the House. This includes Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey who, Day speculates, is more likely to cosponsor Sander’s bill than Sen. Elizabeth Warren is.

“I am very confident there will be cosponsors this time,” Day said. It is a safe bet that progressives will take a long hard look at those names and pressure those who are not supportive to get on board.

Advocates have also been pleased to hear that Sanders is introducing, as Paris describes it, a “real Medicare for All bill,” as earlier rumors suggested he might instead go with half measures like the “public option,” or lowering the age restriction on Medicare to 55. The public option and the lowering of the Medicare age limit, according to Margaret Flowers, could both backfire if implemented. She argues they would remove sick patients from the risk pool for private plans, making the public plans appear to be less efficient. “We hear this is a strong plan and there is a lot of meat on the bone,” Paris said of Sanders’ new proposal.

Moving On: Democrats and Health Reform in Post-Clinton Era 

As noted, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has never publicly supported single-payer. But advocates took notice when right after Trump’s victory, she criticized the ACA. “Let’s be honest: [The ACA’s] not bold. It’s not transformative,” she said. “I’m OK taking half a loaf if our message was ‘Here’s half, now let’s go get the rest.'”

This statement was unlike anything she uttered during the presidential campaign and may represent a significant pivot for Warren. “This [post-election] shift seems likely to unmuzzle single-payer supporters who closeted themselves during the ACA era,” observed Steffie Woolhandler and David Himmelstein, of PNHP, about Warren’s critique.

Warren’s statement is one piece of evidence that because Clinton’s campaign is over, Democrats may feel more liberated to back single-payer. If a member of Congress cosponsored single-payer legislation during the campaign, it may have been perceived as undermining Clinton’s plan, which was anti-single-payer and singularly focused on the ACA.

“It was almost impossible to get cosponsors during the Democratic primary,” Day said.

Clinton, however, is no longer a candidate and therefore no longer the head of the Democratic Party. Who is the head of the party? It depends on who you ask. Some might say Sen. Chuck Schumer or Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the minority leaders of the two congressional bodies. But Sanders is the most popular politician in the country, according to a Fox News poll in March, and there is a sense among some in DC that Sanders is now the de facto leader of the party. Obviously, if this proves to be true, the post-Clinton era will be a boon for single-payer.

Finishing the Job

Despite this progress, the fact remains that about half of the House Democrats have not cosponsored Medicare for All. Even in a blue state like Massachusetts, there are only three cosponsors out of nine house members.

Rep. William Keating, for instance, from the state’s 9th congressional district, which (like every district in the state) supported Clinton in 2016, is one of the holdouts. Data from the Center of Responsive Politics reports that he got more than $39,000 from drug companies in 2016, which is $4,000 more than the average Democrat. But is this the only explanation? Keating’s Massachusetts colleague Rep. Michael Capuano received $34,000 from pharmaceutical companies and he is, and has been in the past, a cosponsor of HR 676. Another Massachusetts Congressman, Joseph Kennedy III, is another kind of animal. He received about $180,000 in donations from Pharma, more than four times the average House member in either party.

Both Keating and Kennedy were contacted by Truthout and asked about HR 676. Keating said that “it seems increasingly clear Medicare for All is where we need to eventually end up,” but did not indicate he would cosponsor HR 676, noting that “there is little common ground with Republicans in this current political climate,” and he remains focused on protecting Obamacare. A staffer for Kennedy could only confirm that the congressman is “still reviewing the legislation.” These are probably not the answers advocates want to hear. But the way things are going, those two members, along with all others who fail to cosponsor the Medicare for All bill, will be contacted by a lot more of their constituents in the coming months and years. And advocates committed to solving the health care crisis plan to keep calling until they get the right answer.

“People are getting pissed off, and the collapse of any alternative from the right is making Medicare for All a more obvious solution,” Day said. In this context, it is noteworthy that 22 new cosponsors came out in favor of HR 676 soon after the GOP abandoned its own bill.

Activists Rally: Demand Albany Pass NY Single-Payer Bill

April 6, 2017

Listen at this link:


With the country once again debating the future of health care, activists rallied Tuesday in Albany in support of a bill that would create a universal, publicly-financed health-insurance plan for all New Yorkers.

Rallygoer and Green Party candidate for Albany mayor Dan Plaat believes having a state single-payer plan in place would have a positive impact on local economics.   “It reminds me a lot of the anti-fracking movement. Each year the rally gets a little bit bigger. More partners are made and more people catch on to the necessity and the importance of this issue in getting this law passed, this piece of policy done.”

The New York Health Act has passed twice in the Assembly, which expects to pass it again for the third year in a row. Assembly Health Committee Chair and bill sponsor Democrat Dick Gottfried says support for universal health care is growing with the public and in the state Senate, where it is co-sponsored by nearly half of all senators.

The bill would replace private insurance premiums, deductibles, co-pays, restricted provider networks and out-of-network charges. It would provide comprehensive health coverage for all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status, health, or employment status, with full choice of doctors and other providers.

Katie Robbins is the Executive Director of the New York Metro Chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program.   “Studies have shown that if the New York Health Act were passed and implemented, you’d have a health care system where 98 percent of New Yorkers would pay less than they do now for health care. Health care costs are rising. The average family plan is $18,000 a year. People know that the increasing deductibles and co-pays, I mean we all know that feeling, if you get sick you worry, ‘Oh shoot, how am I going to pay for this?’ Under our system, we pay for it up front through a payroll tax as well as a tax on capital gains. And then when you need to sue the system, you don’t have to worry about having the money at the time you get sick. It ends this kind of Byzantine practice of tying your health insurance to your job or your marriage.”

The program would be publicly funded based on ability to pay and would eliminate the local share of Medicaid, currently funded through county property taxes.

Platt insists health care should be considered a basic right, nationally and locally.    “It would be a great benefit to the city of Albany, all of the residents, because it is ‘everybody in, nobody out.'”

Platt’s campaign platform include economics, the environment, social justice and human rights. He says New York Health affects and is affected by all of these areas.

Robbins notes the bill has 30 co-sponsors in the state Senate, two votes short of a majority. Republicans control the chamber in a power-sharing agreement with the Independent Democratic Conference, and it’s a long shot to reach the floor for a vote.   “I think it would start a trend in the country so that other states would do it, and then eventually we would adopt a national ‘Medicare for all’ system that would guarantee health care as a right to all residents of this country. And New York can be the first state to do it, start the trend and lead the way.”

A 2015 study by a UMass Amherst professor** estimated that the New York Health Act, if implemented,  would save almost $45 billion in the first year alone, reducing burdensome billing expenses, administrative waste in the insurance industry, monopolistic pricing of drugs and medical devices, and fraud.
