Description

In this edition of the News Bulletin we look at news from the Healthcare Is a Human Right Campaign Collaborative and the HCHR campaigns in Maine, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Vermont. We also share news updates on a new ballot initiative to create a universal, publicly financed healthcare system in Colorado; a study that finds that in the last 25 years, more than 500,000 poor and working class people have been killed by "diseases of despair" associated with poverty, inequality and insecurity; systematic speculation in drug prices brought to light by a particularly gauling recent price hike; and dynamics in the health insurance industry (mergers, the collapse of coops, and double-digit rate hikes) that reveal the fundamental problems with privatized, for-profit health insurance.
