WE BELIEVE IT IS TIME

WE BELIEVE IT IS TIME FOR CONGRESS TO STAND UP FOR MEDICARE FOR ALL. We're calling on sitting members of Congress and anyone running for Congress to go on video pledging to stand up for Medicare for All in any public appearances and statements addressing our country's healthcare crisis.

BECAUSE OF YOUR PRESSURE

BECAUSE OF YOUR PRESSURE, 43 members of Congress decided to co-sponsor Conyers' house bill for Medicare for All. But as the health care debate rages, many of these same co-sponsors have publicly been advocating for half-measures like increasing subsidies for insurance companies or simply playing defense against Medicaid cuts. These congresspeople are silently backing Medicare for All just as a weak political move to cover their bases.
