Please Sign the Petition to Congress Today — Time for Medicare for All

With the decision of House Republican leaders to abandon their fatally flawed bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with legislation that would be far worse – throwing 24 million people off health coverage and driving up costs for millions more — it's time to step up the demand for real health care reform, an improved and expanded Medicare for all.As the town halls and massive protests have made clear the people are ready for a change in national priorities that puts our health first, not last.

Thanks to all of you who have joined town halls, rallies, and made calls to stop the proposed bill, and campaigned with us for Medicare for all.

Today we are joining with Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress to press Congressional Democrats to take the next critical step to protect our patients, our families, and our communities in support of an improved and expanded Medicare for all.

Sign it. Share it, and get everyone you know to sign it.

Public support has shifted overwhelmingly in favor of Medicare for all in recent years. Sen. Bernie Sanders is set to re-introduce a Medicare for all bill in the Senate very soon. In the House, HR 676, the “Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act” has 72 out of 193 House Democrats cosponsoring.

We need every Congressional Democrat to declare their support for Medicare for All. Right now. Today.

Read NNU's statement on the defeat of the House bill.

And, if you live in California, work with us to continue the fight to establish a Medicare for all type system, SB 562, introduced by State Senators Ricardo Lara and Toni Atkins and sponsored by CNA/NNU that is a model for the nation. Join us at http://www.healthycaliforniaact.org/.

Thank you for your support for this critical effort.
