Protect and Expand Medicare
Stop Wall St. Attacks on Healthcare
Celebrate Medicare's 45th Anniversary

Claudia Chaufan MD, PhD, Vice President of the Physicians for a National Health Program - California and Assistant Professor of Health Policy at UCSF.

For 45 years, Medicare has provided healthcare to seniors.

Medicare spends our resources wisely and allows seniors to live with dignity. We want to expand this program by supporting national legislation that would deliver Medicare to everyone (HR 676).

In California, we campaign for SB 810, the California Universal Healthcare Act.

But Medicare is under attack from Wall St.

A National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform has been selected to weaken Medicare and Social Security.

The Commission is being financed by Wall St. investor Peter Peterson. You are invited to a discussion on how to protect Medicare and Social Security.
