The campaign to win Medicare for All is entering new and exciting territory. Our demand is both more viable than it has ever been before, and more under attack than we have ever seen.
Within just the past few months, we’ve seen the introduction of Medicare for All bills in both the House and the Senate. Last week, Medicare for All had its first ever Congressional hearing — a landmark worth celebrating! Meanwhile, the Partnership for America’s Health Care Future -- an anti–Medicare for All coalition -- has spent a combined $143 million on lobbying against Medicare for All in 2018 alone.
Let's build on the momentum of the Congressional hearings, and let's fight back against the corporate class by demonstrating the incredible strength of the DSA Medicare for All campaign!
We are asking all DSA chapters to participate in a Medicare for All Weekend of Action on June 15th + 16th. We're encouraging a variety of tactics: check out our organizing guide for ideas (https://medicareforall.dsausa.org/house-pressure-guide
). If your chapter can participate, sign up here and one of our regional organizers will be in touch!
