Medicare For All Monday, Webinar This Wednesday
In solidarity, Dr. Bill Honigman and Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Dan, Janis, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Donna—your PDA national team.
Tell Congress: We Need Medicare For All!
On Veterans’ Day, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) renews our call for Healthcare Not Warfare. We demand a rapid end to wars and occupations, and diverting funds away from killing and destruction to meeting human needs such as Medicare For All (MFA). We’re closer than ever before to a historic Congressional vote!
This #MedicareForAllMonday, we at PDA are gearing up for a great monthly webinar / conference call this Wednesday, November 13th at 9p ET / 6p PT, (see details below).

We need Improved Medicare For All which will save 10,000s of lives and 100s of $billions every year. Help PDA and our allies force the politicians to listen!
We will be discussing (among other things):
- the plan for financing #MFA proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren,
- some great news from PDA activists in CA concerning a recent fight over proposed language in the California Democratic Party 2020 platform that promoted a “Confuse-the-Public Option,”
- the roll out of the revised State Based Universal HC bill,
- and a local but very significant victory by advocates in having a MFA resolution passed by the City of Los Angeles.
