Nurses Unveil New Advertising Campaign Against Schwarzenegger-Nunez 'Individual Mandate' Plan
Date:1/10/2008

r of the CNA/NNOC Council of Presidents. "Sadly, AB x1.1 is a prescription for more financial risk, denial of care, and heartache for California patients. As patient advocates, RNs will continue working to defeat ABX1.1."

The ad also calls on Californians to join with nurses in working for genuine healthcare reform, such as SB 840, a bill that will be heard in the California Assembly later this year. The ad may also be heard at http://www.guaranteedhealthcare.org.

The full text of the ad reads:

(voice over) The nurses of California agree with Senator Barack Obama: The

government shouldn't punish people who can't afford health

insurance.

(Sen. Obama) I know that there have been some folks who said that it's not

possible to provide universal health care coverage unless

there's a mandate. Their essential argument is the only way

to get everybody covered is if the government forces you to

buy health insurance. If you don't buy it, then you'll be

penalized in some way. And the reason people don't have

health insurance is because they can't afford it.

(voice over) So why are Gov. Schwarzenegger and Assembly Speaker Nunez

proposing a law, AB x 1.1, to force you to buy insurance

which would pad the pockets of the insurance companies? AB x

1.1 is not the path to the universal healthcare we so

desperately need. Don't let the politicians force you to buy

insurance you can't afford and which won't help you when

you're sick.
