In solidarity, Mike Hersh for Alan, Dr. Bill, Dan, Janis, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Mike F., and Shayna—your PDA national team.
On our first Medicare For All Tuesday, we’re happy to report ongoing progress. We support the Medicare For All Act in the House and Senate. This legislation will provide comprehensive healthcare for all of us—including mental, dental, vision, hearing, testing supplies, prescriptions, medical devices, preventative care, the full spectrum of women’s, pediatric, and elder care, long-term / lifetime care, and more—all with zero out of pocket expenses: no premiums, co-pays, caps, or deductibles.
Medicare For All (MFA) will save 10,000s of lives and 100s of $billions each year. Call Congress 202-858-1717 and Click Here to tell your Representative to Cosponsor Rep. Jayapal’s and Rep. Dingell’s Medicare For All Act now! Click Here to tell your Senators to cosponsor Bernie’s MFA bill.
As the above graphics show, the healthcare emergency in the U.S.A is bad and getting worse. Millions of Americans have no insurance, and millions more are woefully under-insured. This leads to delayed and denied care, bankruptcies, even preventable death! All this from a system that squanders our money on waste, abuse, and greed.
As Medicare For All gains support, various special interests have begun pushing plans that purport to address our healthcare emergency, but all of them fall far short. Only Medicare For All will fix our failing medical system. Join us supporting Medicare For All.
This is a banner time for progressives! With parades, vigils, protests, and rallies coming up, now is the time to order a banner. We are going to place an order soon for Healthcare Not Warfare banners in time for parade season. Order your 6′ x 3′ sturdy canvas American union-made banner with grommets today. Contact Deb@pdamerica.org to place your order.
We also have Windmills Not Weapons, We Want Bernie, and Progressive Democrats of America banner designs available. These banners make it easy to get your message out, and to find people to rally or march with. We cannot place an order until we have 7 pre-paid requests of a particular design. So this will take a bit of time. Contact Deb to make arrangements today before you forget.
