Tell Congress: Healthcare Yes; Warfare No
By Mike Hersh for Donna, Mike F., Amos, Janis, Deb, Bryan, Kim, Dan, Judy, Dr. Bill and the rest of the PDA team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) launched our Healthcare Not Warfare campaign several years ago to join together two of our core missions: To guarantee high quality healthcare for all with our demand to end wars and occupations. Today, we’re calling on you to help with both of those imperatives. Tell Congress to end the War In Yemen and to cosponsor HR 676–National Medicare for All!
Tell your Senators to cosponsor the bipartisan Sanders-Lee-Murphy Joint Senate Resolution to apply the War Powers Act to the ongoing U.S. involvement in the War in Yemen. The time has come for Congress to perform its duty under the Constitution and order the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen. Tell Congress to end the War In Yemen.
As PDA Healthcare is a Human Right co-coordinator Dr. Bill Honigman writes:
Our HCHR team would like to acknowledge recent news of great significance to our movement for #HealthcareJustice. First with YUUUGE appreciation, we acknowledge and offer our profound best wishes to National Nurses United Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro who is retiring. Donna Smith will be writing more about that to us soon.
And second also with YUUUGE appreciation, we acknowledge DNC Deputy Chair Rep. Keith Ellison who has stepped up to be the lead House sponsor of HR676, the National Medicare for All Act. Both have been tireless advocates, inside and outside the Democratic Party, both in the streets and in the suites, as late PDA founder Tim Carpenter used to say. Onward!!
