WASHINGTON--Our Revolution on Wednesday announced their enthusiastic support for Sen. Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All legislation, which already has 16 cosponsors.
“Sen. Sanders' Medicare for All bill makes health care a right, not a privilege. Right now, 28 million people do not have health insurance and tens of millions are uninsured,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “This bill sends an undeniable message that every American deserves to receive health care with no deductibles, no copays, and no out of pocket costs.”
“By passing this bill we can end the nightmare of families living in fear of getting sick, or being unable to get the care they need due to the enormous cost,” added Turner. “Providing safe and accessible healthcare is a moral imperative for our country. Our Revolution will be pushing our members to action, asking their senators to cosponsor and vote for Sen. Sanders’ bill.”
Details of Sen. Sanders' bill include:
Our Revolution’s more than 400 local groups and hundreds of thousands of members will be working to organize the millions of people who are prepared to stand up and fight for a government that represents all of us, not just greedy powerful corporate interests.
