Our Revolution on Thursday endorsed Washington state’s Whole Washington ballot measure. If passed, this initiative would create a universal healthcare system for Washington state residents, ensuring everyone would have access to healthcare regardless of their employment, income, or health history.
“Working people in Washington deserve access to quality, affordable health care,” said Our Revolution Board Member Deborah Parker. “Every day too many people are forced to choose between going to the doctor or being able to pay for housing, groceries, or other necessities. Access to health care is one of the greatest moral dilemmas of our time, but Washington can take a huge step towards a more just society by supporting the Whole Washington Health Trust.”
Recent polling shows 64 percent of Washington state residents want Medicare expanded to provide universal healthcare coverage to all Americans.
Our Revolution supports progressive champions and ballot initiatives across the country at every level of government. By supporting candidates and issues backed by people, not corporations, we aim to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
