Social Concerns Committee of the Universalist Unitarian Church
The Social Concerns Committee of the Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula, 740 E Main St, on Friday, April 28, 7:00 P.M is presenting the  documentary, Now Is the Time: Healthcare for Everybody,  by Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg. The United States pays nearly twice as much for healthcare as any other industrial nation, yet it still does not provide care for all of its citizens. Polls show that 58% of Americans favor a national public healthcare program. So why has the U.S. Congress not yet passed, nor considered such a plan? This documentary delves into what single payer healthcare is, how it saves money, and what behind-the-scenes heroes are doing to clear the fog of misperception that keeps us from moving forward. Discussion follows. FREE event.
