Submitted by Toby Israel, Nancy Hall, Toshi Abe and Lawrence Kane

A Resolution of the Princeton Community Democratic Organization Relating to Health Insurance Reform in the United States.

WHEREAS, The PCDO believes that the current system of tying health insurance to employment is unsustainable; and

WHEREAS, Serious changes need to be made to address the rising costs of medical care and health insurance; and

WHEREAS, It is also unacceptable that, in the richest country in the world, 46 million of its population are uninsured; and

WHEREAS, Health care is an internationally recognized human right, not a privilege

BE IT RESOLVED by the Princeton Community Democratic Organization that we support the creation of a universal health insurance program.
