California nurses tour state promoting universal healthcare -

California nurses tour state promoting universal healthcare -

The “Medicare for All” bus made a stop in Bakersfield on Friday. Dozens of health care professionals and community members met at the Kern, Inyo and Mono Counties Central Labor Council building to hear the message the California Nurses Association is taking on the road.

"California nurses are behind the ‘Medicare for All’ tour because we see the hidden costs in human life," said Mary Lynn Briggs, a registered nurse at Mercy Hospital. “It’s an expansion of Medicare to cover everybody from birth to death that is currently not a part of the state of healthcare in the country.”

Donna Smith of the nurses’ association spoke about the average health care spending in the in the nation. She says the best-rated health care system in the world is France.

Dr. Bill Honigman hopped on the tour bus when it was in San Bernardino on Thursday. He says 125 people die a day in America because they can't afford to see a doctor, which means 12.5 people die in California.

"Universal means universal, everybody in and nobody out, and we can do that,” Honigman said. “We already do it for our veterans and folks 65 and older, we just have to have the political will and realize we are giving money to cooperate interests that are making a whole lot of profits and not taking care of us.”

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the law, called the Affordable Care Act by the end of the month. Until then, the wheels on the “Medicare for All” bus keep rolling.

"I don't know what the Supreme Court is going to do,” Briggs said. “Whether they rule for or against it, we still need more, we still need Medicare for all.”

Bakersfield is the fourth stop out of 19 for the group. The tour bus' next stop is Fresno, and the nurses wrap up in Anaheim on July 12.
