Medicare for All Basics


It’s important to make Medicare for All a central part of your campaign, and to do that it’s important to understand the basics of the healthcare system, where the problems are, and how Medicare for All would address these issues.

Here’s the big takeaway: We can’t afford not to do this. Businesses are drowning as premiums rise. Workers aren’t getting the raises they need. Patients are dying because they can’t afford care and are rationing their medications. We’re spending too much money, and 80 million people still don’t have adequate health insurance.

Medicare for All is not a utopian dream, it is a policy that’s desperately needed to save lives and the American economy.
