Expand Medicare Now!

Expand Medicare Now!

I'm writing to demand that you expand Medicare and provide healthcare for millions of people in America. In addition to expanding Medicare to include dental, vision, and hearing, the age of eligibility must be lowered to at least 55 to ensure that more people get the care they need.

Why is this important?

Millions of Americans on Medicare lack coverage they need. From hearing aids to root canals to eyeglasses, elderly Americans are forced to pay out of pocket for essential medical care. The human costs are staggering.

And now we have a shot to change things. Representative Pramila Jayapal and Senator Bernie Sanders are leading a new charge to expand Medicare -- by offering vision, dental, and hearing care for Medicare beneficiaries, and lowering the Medicare eligibility age. This is a critical first step towards Medicare for All and will help millions along the way. Can you help build support in Congress by sending your representative and Senators a message?

Sign the petition and tell the President and Congress: Expand Medicare now!
