Pramila Jayapal Announces Medicare For All PAC
Today, Rep. Pramila Jayapal announced the new Medicare For All PAC. The Medicare For All PAC will support candidates and initiatives around the country that share the common conviction that health care is a human right. One of the best ways to ensure health care for all is to use the system that already exists for millions over the last half century: Medicare.
It’s time for public officials around the country to stand with the American people, the majority of whom—according to the latest polling—believe Medicare For All is the best path forward. Now is the time to improve and expand Medicare to cover all Americans.
“This is a critical time in our nation’s history. The United States is the only industrialized nation that still doesn’t guarantee comprehensive health care to every single resident. Every year premiums and the cost of quality medical care are skyrocketing. Patients are dying because they are putting off medical visits they can’t afford. People are splitting prescription pills so they can make their outrageously high-priced prescription drugs last just a little longer,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal, Chair - Medicare For All PAC. “American families are hurting and public officials need to do better, because no family should be one healthcare crisis away from bankruptcy or a lifetime of paying off medical debt. Insurance companies, drug manufacturers and special interest groups have been standing in the way of real progress for too long - it's time we fought back. Health care cannot be a luxury that’s only available for the wealthy and well-connected—it is a human right. Now is the time for Medicare For All.”
