Supporting peace at home and abroad, Veterans for Peace Chapter 56 strongly supports single payer healthcare for all ("Healthcare for All," Nov. 30). Peace and security go hand in hand, and security should include secure healthcare, which is newly threatened in Washington. Those of us who have Veterans Administration coverage have found that single payer system works well. All advanced countries but one offer their citizens health security.
Whatever the legislative challenges may be for California's Senate Bill 562, we hope Assemblyman Wood and Assembly Speaker Rendon will move expeditiously to move single payer healthcare forward in California.
