CDP Chair Eric C. Bauman Urges Support for SB 562, The Healthy California Act

CDP

Chair Eric C. Bauman sent the following message to Senate Democrats earlier today:

“The California State Senate will soon vote on SB 562, The Healthy California Act. At the recent 2017 California State Democratic Convention delegates overwhelmingly passed a resolution reaffirming our commitment to single payer healthcare legislation. California Democrats believe healthcare is a right for every person and that the best way to ensure that right is a single payer system that puts patients ahead of profits.

“This next vote in the Senate is another crucial test. I urge every Senate Democrat to vote yes. This bill must keep moving forward, so that the authors, Senator Lara and Senator Atkins, can continue the pressing work of designing the right policy for all Californians. I urge every Senator to do all they can to advance the cause of single payer healthcare. Millions of Californians are depending on us to seize this moment of history and finally realize a century’s worth of advocacy and organizing to make healthcare universally accessible for every Californian. And as Donald Trump sends a wrecking ball to Obamacare, we must continue to fight for the human right of healthcare for all.”

A husband, father, grandfather, practicing optometrist, and local businessman, “Dr. Ed” (as he is known to his patients) has spent his life bringing quality eye care to predominantly low-income communities.  As a health care provider, the need to improve access to health care for all Californians is what first drove him to run for office.

Since being elected to the Assembly in 2006 and the Senate in 2010, Dr. Ed Hernandez has been a leader on the implementation of federal health care reform – helping expand access to affordable health care, control costs, and improve the network of providers so people can actually get quality care when they need it. Dr. Ed has been a champion by expanding educational opportunity to qualified students overlooked by our public schools and universities, as well as a major proponent for government reform, including fixing a broken initiative system too often hijacked by billionaires and wealthy corporations. Dr. Ed Hernandez is running to take this experience, leadership, and vision to the next level by serving the people of California as their Lieutenant Governor.

CA’S PROGRESSIVE CAUCUS CHAIR PICKS RICARDO LARA FOR INSURANCE COMMISSIONER

Assembly Member Reggie Jones-Sawyer, Chair of Newly Formed California Progressive Caucus, Endorses Senator Lara
LONG BEACH, CA — Further expanding his coalition of support as he seeks the office of California State Insurance Commissioner, today State Senator Ricardo Lara received an endorsement from California State Assembly Member Reggie Jones-Sawyer, the Chair of the newly formed California Progressive Caucus and who also Chairs the Assembly’s influential Public Safety Committee.

In announcing his endorsement of Senator Lara’s statewide effort, Assembly Member Jones-Sawyer remarked:

“Ricardo Lara is fearless. He’s a bold thinker and he’s got guts. That’s why Ricardo is working hard every day to empower the people of our state to take on the Trump Administration, from issues ranging from healthcare to the environment to protecting immigrants, workers and more. These are a few of the reasons why we need him leading the charge as California’s next State Insurance Commissioner, focusing on protecting consumers, working families and our priorities all across the state. I believe there is no better choice for State Insurance Commissioner and I’m proud to strongly back Ricardo’s campaign.”

Today’s announcement follows the release of the Senator’s new digital video ad, titled, “Embolden,” which takes aim at Donald Trump’s backwards agenda and the President’s comments saying that “California is out of control,” by illustrating the sharp contrast between the Oval Office’s agenda and that of Lara’s.

Act now: Extend California’s polluters pay law

Make corporate polluters pay to clean up their pollution: Call your state assemblymember and urge them to vote YES on AB 378.

 

Call 916-661-4213

California’s climate leadership is at a crossroads — and we need your help to move it forward.

The State Assembly could vote on the future of climate action in California as early as tomorrow — and the vote is close. AB 378 would extend California’s landmark cap-and-trade law, which sets a cap on greenhouse gas emissions and requires companies to pay for their pollution.

California is a global leader in fighting climate change — and with Donald Trump in the White House, our state’s climate leadership is more important than ever.

Tell your assemblymember: Vote YES on AB 378. Call 916-661-4213.

Alert: Special counsel appointed to investigate Trump

Suggested talking points:

  • Hello, my name is [Name] and my ZIP code is [#####].
  • I urge you to uphold California’s climate leadership and vote YES on AB 378.

We can’t let Big Oil and other polluters get a free ride at the expense of everyday Californians. That’s why we make polluters pay — and we invest that money in energy efficiency, public transit, and clean energy. We’re protecting our air and creating thousands of good jobs for Californians. We’re showing the world that California’s clean energy economy is paving the way toward a more prosperous future.

Tell your assemblymember: Uphold California’s climate leadership and vote YES on AB 378. Call 916-661-4213.

Thanks for speaking up.

Tom Steyer
President
NextGen Climate
