Thank You, Zeke Emanuel

GFC has long pointed out to legislators that there is more than one path to universal coverage, including the multi-payer path taken by Germany, France and others. In the past we’ve encouraged legislators to read The Healing of America by TR Reid to gain a sense of those paths. Now, health policy advisor to President Obama Ezekiel Emanuel has written a book (Which Country Has The World’s Best Health Care) that, based on an interview he gave earlier this week on KQED’s Forum, promises to shed valuable new light. I’ve just started the book and will share my notes when completed (here are my notes from Reid’s book, which we’ve shared with some of you before). 92 percent of Californians are covered. Let’s get it to 100 percent.

Govern For California supports lawmakers who serve the general interest.
