People are waking to the possibility of Medicare for All, a transformative health care reform that would provide quality care to all people, regardless of wealth, age, or employment.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal has introduced the Medicare for All Act of 2019, legislation that has come at a time when upwards of 70% of Americans support expanding this loved and proven program.

The movement for Medicare for All is snowballing, and no wonder!

Millions of people in America are not receiving health care because they simply can’t afford it. We’ve heard enough stories: delaying a test because of high copays and deductibles; skipping doses because prescriptions are too expensive; or turning to bankruptcy and GoFundMe to deal with outrageous medical bills. People are dying unnecessarily.

To realize Medicare for All, health care activists like myself are organizing our communities to build our grassroots movement and persuade legislators to pass this lifesaving reform.

Join us! Call your congressional representatives and demand that they cosponsor the Medicare for All Act. Show up at your local Medicare for All organizing party (medicare4all.org/actions).

Now is the time to act. Do it for the health of yourself, your family and everybody.

More lies from a right wing waco. The estimated cost of our current health care system over the next ten years is 59.4 trillion. Under medicare for all that cost would be 57.6 trillion for ten years a savings of almost 2 trillion and everyone would be covered. No one from Canada or Europe is coming to America for health care but 2 years ago Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky went to Canada for his back surgery. Also no one is talking a 95% tax on the rich but back in the 50s under Republican Dwight Eisenhower the top tax rate on the rich was 95%. If Pasley does not like his taxes here he can move to Russia with Moscow Mitch and corrupt Donald Trump.

We will get medicare for all starting next year when President Joe Biden moves into the WH. Taxes for the rich will rise but no where near 95% actually medicare for all will save money. If all of Europe and Canada can do it there is no reason we can't do it. We have the most expensive health care and prescription drug prices in the world that more and more people cannot afford. Bozo Trump never had a plan for health care except to end Obama Care and deny 50 million their Ins. If the rich are made to pay there fair share where are they going to go. I guess Pasley can always move to Russia with Trump after he goes down in flames this November.

I'm going to be bringing this post back up in November, I can't wait to rub this in your face.

With a price tag of over 34 TRILLION DOLLARS in the first 10 years alone, it's not going to happen. Wish in one hand and cr@p in the other and see which one fills up first.

Meanwhile, back in realityville, people from Europe and Canada are coming to the US for serious health issues. Why? Because we have the best system in place hands down.

So ol' dumb dave, it is you who can migrate back to your motherland of socialism, communism, and any other ism that allows the gubmint to control your life.

If you think you hate our healthcare system now, just wait until it's socialized. Bottom line, we don't have the money to sustain such a program. Sure, you can tax the rich at 95%, but guess what, they will pick up and leave. It's a fact, poor people don't create prosperity, visionaries and risk takers are the ones keeping this country afloat. We need jobs, not more government social programs.
