We need emergency relief on Medicare Part D right now!
Stop Privatization of Medicare and cuts in healthcare!
Support the national Single -Payer healthcare bill, HR 676!


Tens of millions of seniors and disable peopled on Medicare are being forced to
choose among confusing private drug plans that offer fewer drugs at higher cost,
with bigger coverage gaps that cost sick Medicare recipients thousands of dollars.
And Medicare isn’t even supplying the information we need and they promised.

Meanwhile Congress has not repealed legislation to limit future Medicare funding,
and push all but the sick and the poor out of Medicare, and into private health plans.
This will limit our healthcare and bankrupt Medicare.

Medicare needs to be improved, and then expanded to cover everyone
regardless of age, health, job status, income, or residency.
Medicare for All (Single Payer) is the only path that can give us
equal, comprehensive, low-cost healthcare for every single person.
HR 676, Medicare for All, has been in the US House of Representatives
for years. It needs to be promoted and supported in the US Congress.

Join us to secure healthcare for our future and our children’s futures.
