Medicare For All Is On The Ballot TOMORROW!
In solidarity, Dr. Bill Honigman and Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Dan, Janis, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Donna—your PDA national team.
This Medicare For All Monday, we at Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) are mindful that our national response to the global novel coronavirus pandemic exposes the need for a coordinated public health system.
To deal with public health emergencies, we need Medicare For All—a public health program with the capacity to finance the all resources we need to ensure everyone gets high-quality healthcare.
Countries around the world with Medicare For All and similar systems are set up to provide early testing, mass treatment, and all other necessary and effective preventive measures—regardless of income level or other factors. The U.S. remains vulnerable.
This national and global crisis only exposes the moral failure of privatized and commoditized medical care. Such “profits over patients” systems mean fewer resources to meet human healthcare needs because of the waste, fraud, and abuse with private insurance and big pharma control over our healthcare decisions.
Clearly we need a Single Payer / Medicare For All system to handle not just this crisis but the many other challenges we face—not the inadequate and inequitable status quo in American Healthcare. This election year, voters need to respond accordingly by nominating and electing Progressives committed to enacting Medicare For All!

Economists and health policy experts agree: We need Improved Medicare For All because it will save 10,000s of lives and 100s of $billions every year. A recent study published in The Lancet estimated that 68,000 Americans die each year due to lack of healthcare.
The study also estimated that MFA would save Americans $trillions. These findings confirm what every recent study tells us. No wonder the American people overwhelmingly support MFA according to exit polling from the primaries so far and every single opinion poll. Now, we must force the politicians to listen!
PDA wholeheartedly supports the Medicare For All Act because this legislation will provide comprehensive healthcare for all of us including, mental, dental, vision, hearing, prescriptions, medical devices, preventative, women’s health, long-term care, and more—all with no out of pocket expenses: no premiums, co-pays, fees, caps, or deductibles.
