California has always helped write America’s future said Governor Newsom today. Newsom said, “one of the first acts as governor is a series of bold, first in the nation actions to lower prescription drug prices and move California closer to health care for all.
We will use both our market power and our moral power to demand fairer prices for prescription drugs.
We’ll ask the federal government that states like California be empowered to truly innovate and transform our healthcare systems: to develop a single-payer health system to achieve universal coverage, contain costs, and promote quality and affordability. We will not accept the status quo — we will demand better care for ALL of California.”
