A propósito da Reforma de fendida por Barack Obama


CNA/NNOC is a leading national advocate for universal healthcare reform, through a single-payer style system based on an improved and expanded Medicare for all. CNA/NNOC is campaigning for single-payer legislation, HR 676 in Congress, S 703 in the Senate, and SB 810 in California.

Additionally, CNA/NNOC has attracted national and international acclaim for sponsoring the nation’s foremost RN patient safety law requiring minimum RN-to-patient ratios, the most effective solution in the U.S. for stemming the erosion of care standards in hospitals.

California was the first state in the nation to adopt RN ratios, but NNOC affiliates in Texas and Illinois are also working to win ratios and other patient protections in their states.

When Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sought to roll back the ratio law in 2004, CNA drew the world’s attention by successfully challenging the celebrity politician, then at the height of his popularity, and forging what became a broad coalition that defeated Schwarzenegger’s attack on the ratio law and a series of initiatives that targeted working people.


Michael Moore and Nurses Lead AFL-CIO March for Single Payer

Fica o vídeo e a notícia:

Michael Moore joined nurses and members of the AFL-CIO in support of single payer universal healthcare at the AFL-CIO's September 2009 convention in Pittsburgh, PA.

Moore and nurses celebrated the AFL-CIO's history-making announcement to endorse single payer healthcare for all, and led a march to the premiere of Moore's new film: Capitalism, A Love Story. Moore has a long history of supporting labor; his uncle participated in the 1936-37 Flint, Michigan sit-down strike that led to the formation of the United Auto Workers Union.

Moore and members of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee spoke out on behalf of millions of uninsured and under-insured Americans. Other convention speakers included Leo Gerard, International President of the United Steelworkers Union, Cecil Roberts, President of the United Mine Workers, Rose Ann DeMoro, Executive Director of the California Nurses Association, Deborah Burger, Co-President of CNA/NNOC, and Greg Junemann, IFPTE President.
