Don’t Let Corporatists Fool Congress With Imitations
Tell Your Rep to Cosponsor the Medicare For All Act!
Today is April Fool’s Day, but Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is not fooled by inferior alternatives to Medicare For All (MFA). Now that we’re closer than ever to enacting MFA—with more than 100 cosponsors, first-ever hearings coming up, and overwhelming popular support—corporatists are trying to fool elected officials, the media, and the general public. Don’t let them be fooled by “Medicare For Some,” “Public Option” or various buy-in proposals.
Alternative proposals all pay our tax money to insurance companies which deny care, create additional delays, paperwork, and expenses, but don’t provide any healthcare. These imitations all cost more and do less than Medicare For All. Make sure your Representative and contacts know that only the Jayapal/Dingell Medicare For All Act (H.R. 1384) will guarantee all necessary medical care to all Americans! Share the message on social media using #MedicareForAll #mfa and #HR1384.

Call Congress 202-858-1717. Urge your Rep.
to cosponsor the only Medicare For All Act
When we founded PDA in 2004, we dedicated ourselves to enacting Medicare For All. While other organizations supported less progressive, less effective alternatives, PDA kept Medicare For All front and center. Now, you can help us gain even more support for this critically important legislation, H.R. 1384.
Two of the most effective and passionate healthcare organizers in the USA are part of our PDA family: Donna Smith, formerly our Executive Director and currently the Chair of our National Advisory Board; and Dr. Bill, our national staffer, and California State Coordinator. These two dedicated, effective spokespeople make regular appearances at events, on TV, radio, and in print. They also lead our Healthcare is a Human Right issue team. Please pitch in to help us cover their travel and other expenses.
No fooling: This is the best healthcare legislation in our nation’s history. Please do all you can to help us gain as many cosponsors as possible. Call Congress at 202-858-1717 to urge your Representative to cosponsor Rep. Jayapal’s Medicare For All Act. Please pitch in whatever you can afford to support our organizing for Medicare For All, so we can send Dr. Bill all around the USA to gain support for MFA.
Along with giving, you can help by signing up to make a MFA letter drop. Contact Mike Fox to deliver a Medicare For All Letter to Your Congressperson. Also Tell Your Representative to Cosponsor Rep. Jayapal’s and Rep. Dingell’s Medicare For All Act.
For Healthcare as a Human Right!
