What is Whole Washington?
Whole Washington is an ambitious group of citizens and healthcare professionals, determined to bring single payer health care to Washington State through a statewide ballot initiative. We believe healthcare is a human right.
Why Single Payer?
Single Payer is a publicly financed health care system that builds on existing programs; it would improve and expand health care to cover all Washington residents
The initiative would guarantee access to comprehensive, high-quality and affordable healthcare to everyone who needs it, regardless of employment, income or health status
By replacing our current fragmented patchwork of competing private insurance companies (with administrative costs, profits and high executive salaries) with a nonprofit single payer program, Washington state would save enough money to guarantee comprehensive health care to all
Recent polls show that 60% of US adults want to expand Medicare for all. With each day that goes by, Washington residents continue to suffer because they are uninsured or underinsured, and families are bankrupted by medical costs and lose their homes. It’s time to act.
