Welcome to Demand Universal Healthcare!
Does America need Healthcare for All? DUH!
As 2019 brings harder struggles to all but the wealthy, polls show that healthcare is the number one issue on the minds of American voters, that over 70% of Americans favor "Medicare for All," including at least 52% of Republicans. With the 116th Congress now controlled by Democrats in the House, including a freshman class NOT bought by corporate money, we have a realistic chance to move a bill forward.
Whatever the next year brings, we must welcome ALL those who are committed to seeing the U.S. provide healthcare - as defined in H.R. 1364 - to everyone residing here. We welcome gratefully the Republicans, members of the FB page Republicans for Single Payer and others. We must be united and relentless in our demand, no matter our political affiliation, our physical ability, or the methods we employ to amplify our DEMAND for UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE!
This is our time - JOIN US in making it an historic one!
And so it begins. Candidates have been endorsed from Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, California, Texas and the candidate endorsed for the special election to Elijah Cummings' seat in Maryland's 7th District, and finally, Ohio. In January, Mississippi, Maryland, West Virginia and Kentucky will be announced. See you in 2020!
Kentucky presented us with a classic political dilemma - one, in fact, being played out on the presidential level. You have an evil, law-breaking, corrupt guy in office who MUST go and you have two candidates ready to take him out. Do you go with the establishment DNC-supported, Republican-half-the-time, same old same old with nothing new to offer? Or do you grow a spine, take a chance, feel excited by a candidate with a record of consistency, someone who, maybe like you, knows poverty and sacrifice, has faith, integrity, and is his authentic self whether he's in the State House, volunteering at a food pantry, or in church.
We solved this problem by doing the same thing we did way back in 2017 - we endorsed Bernie then, did it again this time, and are proud to endorse Charles Booker for Senate now.
