“The right to regulate has to be preserved” How We can make a bigger difference than anything else

“The right to regulate has to be preserved”

the US itself has set up a huge roadblock to health care reform - restrictive t--deals that block the elements of single payer systematically, which states run into - they frustrate state plans.

the first linked document is from Maine.:

Other states also face this same road block which needs to be address at the international level- BUT THE DESIRE TO DO SO IS THERE.

Who is blocking it- The United States!! That wasn't a typo. (Some context on existing US tr/ ade deals blocks to health care reform)

Carve outs urgently need to be placed in TiSA (the new negotiations they re talking about "Friends of Services" -

To prevent the situation from becoming WORSE.

More info can be found in Europe at the TiSA negotiations- Europeans are fighting to be able to keep their public health care and education! .

I will add links here as I find them. Note- Europeans seem to be ignoring the earlier WTO services agreement- maybe they don't realize its there?
