Healthcare is a Human Right

Progressives in Congress have re-introduced the Medicare for All Act. If passed, this bill would finally end the international embarrassment of the so-called “richest nation on earth” failing to provide basic healthcare coverage for its people. Medicare for All means no premiums, no co-pays and no deductibles. And it means price-gouging corporations will not get to profit off our sickness. Medicare for All is common sense applied to health insurance. We know how difficult   it is currently for physicians who must fill out  numerous forms to enable their patients to collect payment for valid medical services, to be able to collect payment for being treated by a physician.  There has been a flood of early retirements by Physicians who are tired of being  insurance agents, using their valuable time to worry about coverage for their patients instead of spending  time caring for them.

 

This is the result of an “out of control” private profit making healthcare industry. Medicare for All isn’t radical, it’s common sense. And even though Republicans control the House of Representatives, and our President said he would veto the bill, there’s never been more Medicare for All supporters in office. We have no choice but to build support and march forward for single payer Medicare for All.

If you live in Representatives Seth Moulton, Jake Auchincloss, Richard Neal or Stephen Lynch’s districts, urge them to support the Medicare for All Act HERE

 

If you live in Representatives Katherine Clark, Bill Keating, Jim MCGovern, Ayanna Pressley or Lori Trahan’s districts, please thank them for being a co-sponsor HERE

 

Please thank both our Senators for their support for Medicare for All HERE
