To: The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Medicare for All!

The American people are ready for Medicare for All, and it is time for Congress to act. We must ensure that everyone has access to quality, affordable health care—and not at the mercy of private insurance companies that profit by denying care.

Why is this important?

Health care should be a basic right for everyone in the United States. It's a national shame that so many Americans have to choose between lifesaving health care and going into debt or bankruptcy, especially during a pandemic that has shown how vulnerable we all are.

Despite Trump packing the court with far-right judges, the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act, so we're no longer in immediate danger of our healthcare being ripped away from millions of people. Now is the time to expand coverage even further and continue to erase generations of inequality in our healthcare.

Over half of all Democrats in the House of Representatives already support Medicare for All. There is real momentum. Everyone deserves quality healthcare, no matter their ability to pay.

Reasons for signing

  • I'm living with shizophrenia, depression, anxiety, mild autism, adhd, ocd, binge eating disorder, gender dysphoria, and poor dental health.
  • I am 51, and have stage 4 kidney failure. My kidney function may not be low enough to make me eligible for Medicare (though it’s very close!), but I have the annoying symptoms of extreme fatigue, muscle pain, migraines, nausea, and loss of appetite. Yes, a 51 year old CAN be that sick, and unable to work!! Yes, Medicare needs to be expanded to allow 51 year olds to be able to get Medicare!!!!
  • No one deserves to die because they can't afford live saving medication.
