Now is the time to hit the streets. Medicare for All is making news; in fact, the body of the American Health Care Act was still warm when calls for single payer started blowing up social media. Even major news outlets (which during the primary race for President last year took a much cooler view of single payer) have started covering progressive efforts to put single payer back on the table and endorsed a Medicare-for-All approach!

Here’s our media round-up of the best single payer coverage from last week:
