Healthcare Not Wealthcare

Nov 18, 2019

By Donna Smith, Executive Director – Progressive Democrats of America

Tell Your Representative:
We Need Medicare For All!

 

Right now, there are people in our nation who should see a doctor, but they can’t because they can’t afford it. People in the U.S.A. are skipping or splitting doses of medication, because it’s too expensive.

For countless Americans, getting sick or hurt means losing our job, and losing our employer-based health insurance. Countless others face hardship due to sky-rocketing medical bills—the number one cause of bankruptcy in the U.S.A., but unheard of in other wealthy nations.

The victims include millions of uninsured people, as well as millions of others who have insurance, but can’t afford ever-increasing copays, deductibles, and fees, despite paying ever-rising premiums.

If you agree with us that all of this is outrageous, then please join Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) telling Congress that healthcare is a human right.
