• Create a Medicare for All, national health insurance program to provide everyone health care coverage on a national level. This will ensure that millions of uninsured and underinsured will finally have access to quality care and can get the help they need. 

• Millions of Americans are forced into poverty every year because of medical debt; with Medicare For All there will be no surprise bills, no premiums, and no deductibles. 

​• An estimated 26% of Americans struggle with some sort of mental health illness but nearly half don't get the help they need because of cost and the stigma surrounding seeking care. We must work to expand mental health services and make it widely accessible and free. 

• Medicare For All will expand and improve coverage for millions and will include dental, vision, comprehensive coverage for prescription drugs, mental health care, and so much more. 

• The common argument against Medicare For ALL is that millions of people prefer their own health insurance. But recent studies have shown quite the opposite; in fact, recent polling shows more than 69% of eligible voters favor a Medicare for All system.

• Another argument frequently used is that the government will have total control as to whether or not you get "quality care" and will make your medical decisions for you; this is simply NOT true. Under Medicare for All, you will still get to choose your doctor and remain in control of your medical decisions. 

• Over the next 10 years if we keep our current system, it will cost approximately $52 trillion and will contribute to about 70,000 unnecessary deaths per year. 

 

• How can we pay for it? Well, there are a number of proposals. But, we can pay for it by taxing extreme wealth, closing the many corporate tax loops-holes that exist, and by using an income based scale system.
