Sen. Bernie Sanders Introduces the Medicare for All Act of 2017

Health Care Is a Right
Written by JoAnn Chateau

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced Medicare-for-All legislation in the Senate yesterday. Bernie asks for you active support. You may do so by contacting your senators — if you want to let them know that you want universal health care for all Americans

Rep. Conyers (D-MI) also introduced the H.R.676 – Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act in the House last January. Ditto. Contact your representatives.

If Medicare-for-All does not pass through Congress at this time, we are laying the foundation for it to pass next time.
