class="gkFeaturedItemTitle" Opinion: Medicare for All - The Elephant in Congress
- Topic: Terry De Wolfe
- By Terry De Wolfe
Note: The following is a reprint of an article written by Monterey Park resident Terry De Wolfe for the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). NAMI-SGV is a long time supporter of “Medicare for All” and parity for mental illnesses in all insurance programs. In the political health care battle that resulted in the recent narrow (5 votes) passage of “something” by the House of Representatives, single payer health insurance – “Medicare for All” (HR-676) - was exempted from the process. And while other plans were priced and analyzed by the Congressional Budget Office, Medicare for All was denied CBO review. This Cinderella was not invited to the ball.
