FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Health care has been at the forefront of political discussion at the national and state level. In California the conversations surrounding Senate Bill 562, legislation to provide single payer healthcare in California, are important – the future of our nation’s healthcare is in jeopardy.
On Wednesday, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced that he and his family received death threats over his decision to hold Senate Bill 562 in committee to address concerns about the bill. Stonewall Young Democrats unconditionally condemn the death threats made toward Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. Violence and threats of violence are inexcusable and prevent healthy, civil and constructive debate.
Today, we ask the LGBT community to come together in condemning these actions, while continuing to engage in constructive dialogue on healthcare reform.
