Join Philly DSA in the fight for Medicare For All!
Dwight Evans is running for Congress in Pennsylvania's 3rd Congressional District. While Mr. Evans is a supporter of a Medicare for All bill, he continues to take campaign donations from the insurance industry.
We believe that a fully nationalized healthcare system that is absent of private interest is winnable. We demand that it adhere to our five principals (https://medicareforall.dsausa.org/about
) and that the politicians drafting legislation not concede to a private/public plan such as medicare extra.
Call Mr. Evans and use the script below to urge him to give the money back!

My name is ____________ and live at ________________. I’m a constituent of Representative Evans, and a supporter of Medicare for All. I was excited to see he joined the Congressional Medicare for All Caucus; however, it concerns me that he’s taken over $10,000 in campaign donations from Blue Cross. How can he say he supports Medicare for All, when he takes money from a company that would be put out of business by Medicare for All?"
