It would make sense to supplement the legislative campaign for SB 810 with a California Healthcare Rights Amendment (HRA) movement to amend the California constitution to require any government in power to implement a single-payer system.

An HRA movement couldn’t hurt the legislative drive, and might help it greatly. It would bring in millions of citizens to the cause and nullify the enormous power of the opposition to block implementation of the system. It also would provide a blueprint for a national HRA movement to amend the U.S. Constitution.
