Falling on Deaf Ears

As Americans and as AFSCME members we deserve the best healthcare benefits available. We work hard for our benefits and have gladly given into wage concessions to keep our healthcare benefits which in most cases have seen increased deductibles and more insurance carrier micro-managing of essential care.

Why do we want this bill to pass that includes the following:
  • A new tax on high cost healthcare plans (our plans)
  • No Public Option
  • No Medicare buy-in for adults between the ages of 55-64
  • No requirement for employers to pay their fair share to ensure their employees are covered under a comprehensive healthcare plan
