CBID September 2018 General Meeting Notes:

Asher’s opening notes:

  • Thanking everyone for the NY State primary – good job everyone!
  • County Committee is having a meeting tonight
  • Zellnor won by less than $3k votes and in the 36th he won 3,900 to 3,6000 – boots on the ground did the job!
    • Zellnor was going to come – stuck at County – which is true for many electeds
  • Acknowledging the people down in DC supporting Dr. Ford testimony to stop Kavanaugh

Agenda Notes:

  1. Katy – Director of the Campaign for NY Health is discussing the bill, the New York Health Act, for single payer so we can understand it better
    1. Universal guaranteed healthcare / = single-payer
    2. Predicting 50% increases on private healthcare + huge deductibles
    3. All the candidates who running against IDC are supporting this plan
    4. Kevin Parker is here – and he supports the bill as do others
    5. We need this more than ever now – and we will need waivers from DC – this is a concern – we need waivers etc.
    6. They have a back-up plan to make healthcare more affordable even without help from DC
    7. The Republicans and opponents are scared, we have evidence – they have formed an anti-single payer group – go to Realities of Single Payer.com – spreading misinformation
    8. City Council has set up an information campaign, and – you can ask your city councilmember
