A group of Erie Residents spend the day urging local legislators to co-sponsor a statewide healthcare bill.
The group, Healthcare for all PA supports a single payer healthcare system in which everyone is covered. They say this statewide healthcare plan is a better option than the current Obamacare and the plan proposed by President Trump. “We have a better plan, we’ve done the economic impact study, we have the plan, but we need the representatives to sign on as co-sponsors and to start the discussion,” says Rebecca Pruveadenti, VP of Healthcare for all PA.
Representative Bizzarro has met with this organization many times since being elected and says he’s very supportive of the bill. He has not been a co-sponsor on the bill, he only likes to co-sponsor legislation he has had a hand in drafting. Just because he’s not a co-sponsor, that doesn’t mean he’s not supportive.
