Single Payer Advocates including NYSNA Board of Directors Support Bernie Sanders in NY Primary

SUPPORT FOR A SINGLE PAYER, MEDICARE FOR ALL HEALTHCARE SYSTEM HAS MY VOTE

As unions, public health committees, healthcare professionals and caregivers, political organizations, elected officials and concerned individuals living and working in New York State, we place our highest priority on the achievement of universal healthcare and continued progress in access to quality healthcare for all.

We believe that healthcare should be a right, not a privilege, for all who live in the United States.

Towards this paramount goal, essential to the health and safety of our country, we are united in a long-standing effort to achieve a Single Payer, Medicare for All healthcare system that would provide care on the basis of patient need and bring to an end the profiteering of the health insurance industry.

We are resolved that the time for transition to a Single Payer, Medicare for All system is now.

This is one of the critical reasons we are supporting Senator Bernie Sanders, whose principled support for a Single Payer, Medicare for All system is a centerpiece of his campaign platform, in the New York Democratic Presidential Primary on April 19, 2016. Senator Sanders’ position is most consistent with our own principles and values and he deserves our vote.

We netted more delegates from the Democrats Abroad voting than Hillary Clinton netted

with her narrow victories in Illinois, Massachusetts and Missouri combined.

Pulled from a Bernie Sanders email. The context:

Bernie Sanders for President

This is a big deal. Yesterday afternoon, we received the final results from another Democratic primary contest:

Democrats Abroad Results - March 21, 2016 Sanders: 69% (nine delegates) Clinton: 31% (four delegates)

Here’s why this result is important: we netted more delegates from the Democrats Abroad voting than Hillary Clinton netted with her narrow victories in Illinois, Massachusetts, and Missouri combined.

This is the result we needed. Now we wait to hear from Arizona, Idaho, and Utah later tonight, where we should do well. But we also have to focus on what’s next, and that is the CRITICAL caucus in Washington on Saturday. Your $20 contribution today will ensure we have what we need to win Washington State’s caucus this Saturday. We need a good margin there, and your contribution could make the difference.

We’ve said all along that March 15th would be the high-water mark for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Now the map shifts in our favor, and we’re going to begin clawing back delegates in state after state until we capture the lead on June 7th. But that will only happen if we continue to stand together.

In solidarity,

Jeff Weaver Campaign Manager Bernie 2016

Weather cancels Clinton, Sanders campaigning in Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A looming snowstorm is keeping Bernie Sanders and Bill Clinton from campaigning in Wyoming.

Sanders canceled just hours after announcing stops in Laramie and Casper on Wednesday. Former President Bill Clinton canceled plans to visit Cheyenne on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service has put a wide swath of Wyoming from Lander to Pine Bluffs under a winter storm warning from midnight Tuesday through Wednesday. Three to 8 inches of snow is forecast.
