Tell Congress: We Need Medicare For All!

 

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) chose Medicare For All as one of our top priorities at our launch fifteen years ago. We’ve never been closer to achieving healthcare as a basic human right for all.

The Medicare For All Act will guarantee comprehensive high-quality healthcare for all of us—including all mental, dental, vision, hearing, prescriptions, medical devices, preventative, geriatric, pediatric, special care for disabled persons, women’s, long-term, and every other kind of medical care! All with zero out of pocket expenses for patients—no premiums, co-pays, fees, caps, or deductibles.

All unbiased polling shows overwhelming support for Medicare For All (MFA). Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and our allies need you to help us make the politicians listen! Can you help organize a People’s Assembly event? Email Mike Fox to get active with our coalition August MFA actions!
