This is good news for the 20 million people who would have lost their health coverage, including 825,000 Washingtonians. It is also good news for advancing the State Based Universal Health Care Act (HR 3775), which would provide needed federal support to WA and other states attempting to create universal public plans to cover all their residents. SBUHC accomplishes this by amending the ACA.

But let us keep our eyes on the prize:  improved and expanded Medicare for All (HR 1976). Many studies have shown this is the best and most economical way to provide guaranteed, comprehensive, affordable and equitable health care to everyone in our country. The ACA was a huge step forward, but it does not solve the problems of health care cost and affordability, it does not eliminate racial health care inequities, and it leaves millions out altogether. Until Congress is able to pass a national plan like Medicare for All, we need to make sure that the ACA remains in place to protect those who depend on it, and that it is amended by SBUHC so states can lead the way towards universal health care.
