The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is now the law of the land. It promises to reduce the number of uninsured in half by expanding Medicaid and forcing people to buy private insurance. But the ACA will still leave 26 million people with no healthcare. It also delivers different classes of care to different classes of people. For unions, healthcare coverage will still be a hotly contested issue on the bargaining table. Join us for a lively panel discussion on why the 99% needs Medicare for All.
