Health Care for All – Yolo invites the public to a screening of a 70-minute documentary, Now is the Time: Healthcare for Everybody, on Thursday, May 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Woodland Community and Senior Center, 2001 East Street.
This 2016 documentary delves into what single-payer financing for health care is, how it saves money, and what is being done to clear the misperceptions that keeps us from moving forward. Through interviews, animations and expose, this new film tells the story of the drama, struggle, and success of the movement towards health care equity.
Why is NOW the time? According to their website, producers, Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg (sic), say that they have “seen enough to know that insurance-based healthcare is not effective for keeping costs down and giving everyone access to needed medical care. . . ., polls indicate that the general public supports the idea of universal healthcare. So it should be a no-brainer, right? Well, no. Some of the obstacles are obvious. Big money. Fear of government. But there seems to be something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together. What is so difficult about the idea of looking after each other? This film intends to expose the fog, and will leave viewers examining what it means to be an American and what it takes to step into action”.
This appropriately titled film is very timely, as the political threats to the Affordable Care Act in congress continue. There will be a discussion afterwards. Learn about the recently introduced California bill – SB 562: The Healthy California Act – and the movement toward guaranteed health everyone.
