“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and the most inhuman because it often results in physical death.”

In solidarity, Dr. Bill Honigman and Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F., Dan, Janis, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Donna—your PDA national team.
Today, as we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy, we have an opportunity to help realize his dream: that we end gross inequality in our society. We join Dr. King’s demands for Healthcare Equality.
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) demands single payer / Medicare for All (MFA) because only a truly fundamental reform of healthcare will guarantee every one of us all the healthcare we need to live long, healthy, fulfilled lives. Anything short of MFA will fail to live up to the standards we need.
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. The American people overwhelmingly support MFA according to every single opinion poll. Help PDA and our allies 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.
PDA has been mobilizing for MFA since our founding in 2004. We’re closer than ever before, but we need more cosponsors in the House to bring the Medicare For All Act to the floor for a historic vote. Are you with us?
