Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) calls on the Democratic Party to lead the way during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re at a crossroads in the battle to bring a sane, humane, and more cost-efficient and medically responsible health care system to the United States.

We understand there is no legitimate argument against replacing the exploitative, dysfunctional, and profiteering private health insurance racket with a unified and universal single-payer government managed health insurance system.

Yet, Bernie Sanders, who “wrote the damn bill,” did not win the Democratic nomination for President even though his signature issue had majority support among Democratic voters.

Instead, Joe Biden, a friend to the health insurance industry and a staunch opponent of Medicare for All, is the Party’s nominee—and he’s a heavy favorite to be the next President.

Wednesday, July 29th—RSVP with Mike Fox

  • Given all of this, how should Medicare for All advocates approach the upcoming Democratic Party Convention?
  • How should pro-Medicare for All delegates register their dissent?
  • Should they try to organize non-Sanders delegates, the overwhelming majority of whom are Biden delegates? Or is that futile?
  • What’s the best course of action to take at the convention to strengthen the Medicare for All movement for the long term?
  • How should the M4A movement engage the Biden campaign throughout the fall?
  • In the wake of Bernie’s defeat, how do we adjust our strategy to win a single-payer health care system in the country?

All of these questions and more will be addressed this Wednesday at 8pm ET / 5pm PT on PDA’s national Medicare for All livestream hosted by Senator Nina Turner with guests Dr. Victoria Dooley and Rep. Rashida Tlaib. To register for the livestream e-mail PDA’s Mike Fox

This event is co-sponsored by RootsAction, Our Revolution, the Bernie Delegates Network, People for Bernie, and OnceAgain.

Medicare for All will not only be a winning issue in November—it promises to be a landslide-winning issue!

For the sake of our general welfare, and for defeating Donald Trump and Congressional  Trumpublicans, we call on the Democratic Party to include Medicare for All in the 2020 Democratic Party platform.

Please Click Here to sign the petition: Include Medicare for All in the Democratic Party Platform. Then please share this petition on social media and via email.

 

P.S.: Election Day, November 3rd, is less than 100 days away! Voters will choose leadership that will determine the course of our future on healthcare, climate, racial justice, redistricting, and so much more. We need your sustained, monthly donations to elect Progressive Democrats to Congress.

    The only recent (June-July) polling I’ve seen is from KFF and I’m not sure how reliable that is. It is reliable according to Open Secrets and Wikipedia, but I don’t know who runs it or where it’s funding comes from now, since it is no longer the Kaiser Family Foundation and not affiliated with Kaiser-Permanente. How can we be sure there is enough support for Medicare for All across the U.S. at this point? I think there should be, and I want to see the Democratic Party commit to it rather than just a public option. As a 2020 National Delegate for Bernie, I signed the National Delegates petition demanding M4A in order to vote for the Platform, but I’m not sure if that’s the right way to go. Looking forward to hearing your answers about this. Thank you.
