We Want Our Taxes To Support Healthcare Not Warfare
In solidarity, Mike Hersh for Alan, Dr. Bill, Dan, Janis, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Mike F., and Shayna—your PDA national team.
Today is tax day. I just filed over the weekend. I don’t begrudge paying in to support the USA. However, I do resent that we spend nearly $1 trillion per year on weapons and warfare, but we don’t have a comprehensive healthcare program that guarantees high-quality healthcare for all of us. That’s why Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) supports Healthcare as a Human Right, and that’s why we have our Healthcare Not Warfare campaign.
Last week, Bernie Sanders introduced his Medicare For All Act (S. 1129). 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 (MFA)—both Bernie’s new bill, and the House legislation introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Debbie Dingell. Please click here to Become a Grassroots Co-Sponsor of Medicare for All! Also, click here to tell your Senators to cosponsor Bernie’s bill.
We support the Medicare For All Act in the House and Senate. This legislation will provide comprehensive healthcare for all of us with zero out of pocket expenses: no premiums, co-pays, cap, or deductibles, including, mental, dental, vision, prescriptions, medical devices, preventative, women’s health, long-term care, and more.
Medicare For All will save 10,000s of lives and 100s of $billions each year. Call Congress 202-858-1717 Click Here to tell your Representative to Cosponsor Rep. Jayapal’s and Rep. Debbie Dingell’s Medicare For All Act now!
