For Healthcare as a Human Right! Mike Hersh for Dr. Bill, Donna, Alan, Mike F., Janis, Deb, Dan, Kim, Bryan, and Shayna—your PDA National Medicare for All Team
When Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004, we were nearly alone among national multi-issue progressive organizations in our dedication to Medicare For All (MFA). While other organizations supported far less progressive, (and far 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. Sign this petition to become a grassroots cosponsor of the Medicare For All Act. Email Mike Fox to drop an Educate Congress letter urging your Representative to cosponsor the legislation. Pitch in whatever you can to keep PDA mobilizing for Medicare For All. Call Congress at 202-858-1717. Urge your Representative to cosponsor Rep. Jayapal’s Medicare For All Act
Two of the most renowned 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 Honigman, 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. Over the next few days, Dr. Bill is making personal appearances, and leading our national Healthcare is a Human Right (HCHR) organizing call this Wednesday 9PM ET, 6PM PT. Dial-in Number: (712) 770-4160 Access Code: 733525# (for more details, see below).

PDA is part of a national coalition organizing support for the new Medicare For All Act of 2019. This legislation would guarantee all medically necessary care including—in patient, out patient, surgery, hospitalization, emergency, mental, dental, vision, hearing, medical devices, tests, supplies, pharmaceuticals, therapy, long term, rehabilitation, preventative care—and more. All with no out-of-pocket costs. No copays, no deductibles, no fees, no costs of any kind. We need your help now to mobilize for MFA; and that requires funding.
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 to empower our legislative success. Email and Call Congress at 202-858-1717 to urge your Representative to cosponsor Rep. Jayapal’s Medicare For All Act. Also please pitch in $1000, $100, or whatever you can afford to support our organizing for Medicare For All.
P.S. We call on all members of Congress to cosponsor Medicare For All now. We’re here to help you make progress in your state and locality! If you need help organizing a new PDA chapter or energizing your existing chapter, please contact PDA Field Coordinator Dan O’Neal. Join the PDA Phone Team making easy, effective calls from your own home with Mike “Phone Guy” Fox.
