Legislative News: We Need Your Help!
We need your help in requesting that the California Assembly OPPOSE AB 1400, which mandates a government run single payer health care program and abolishes private health insurance, Medi-Cal, Medicare, Covered California, and the valuable advocacy services of insurance professionals.
AB 1400 forces Californians into healthcare chaos while demanding they hand over an additional $200 billion dollars per year in new state taxes on jobs, income, services and more – making it more expensive to live in California for working families, seniors, and employers.
AB 1400 would force every single Californian into a government plan, taking away any choice for anyone who might want to select private coverage or opt out.
The deadline for this bill is January 31st, the time to act is now!
Contact your state assembly member today and urge them to OPPOSE AB 1400!

These relationships were build through SAHU, and my life has been enriched beyond measure!
When you’re not working, how do you enjoy spending your time?
I live every waking moment pursuing Optimal Health through daily workouts, running in the woods and around my neighborhood; reading (including NAHU's Benefit Specialist publication) and learning new business and personal improvement, serving in my church and communities; and creating memorable adventures with my husband (Dave) and 11-year-old son (Joshua)!
