Bernie Launches Senate Medicare For All!
Sign On As A Grassroots MFA Cosponsor!

The big news last week was Bernie’s introduction of his Medicare For All Act (S. 1129). Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was there for the launch, and we’ve been working for #MedicareForAll ever since our founding in 2004.

We’re part of a powerful coalition working to gain support for Medicare For All—both Bernie’s new bill, and the House legislation introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Debbie Dingell. Also, PDA’s Executive Director Alan Minsky traveled to Europe last week, where he met with top U.S. and European progressives to discuss international cooperation on the global challenges we all face.

Medicare For All will save 10,000s of lives and 100s $billions each year. Call Congress at 202-858-1717. Click Here to tell your Representative to Cosponsor Rep. Jayapal’s and Rep. Debbie Dingell’sMedicare For All Act now!
