California Declare Your Healthcare Independence #YesSB562 Rally (Los Angeles)

  • 6801 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90028 United States (map)

SB 562 organizers and supporters will hold a rally to declare healthcare independence from the special interests who have a strangle hold on our representatives. There will be an estimated 50 + in attendance, dressed in patriotic attire. Participants will hold red, white and blue signs that depict the true values of American democracy, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Universal and affordable healthcare is not only attainable, it empowers the exercise of all other rights. 

Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced on Friday June 24 at 4pm that he would be blocking SB 562, The Healthy California Act, and holding it in the Assembly Rules Committee until further notice. Despite claiming that the bill needs work, Speaker Rendon is obstructing the legislative process through which that work can be done. Since 2010 Governor Brown, Speaker Rendon, and Senate Pro Tem De Leon have received $3.4m from the health insurance industry. Californians won't settle for back room secret deals and the denial of democracy when it comes to our life and health.
