Exciting news! The Medicare for All Act, which expands on and improves Medicare and includes all U.S. residents, will be reintroduced in both the House and Senate on May 16. Although action in the House is unlikely this year, this is still an important opportunity to build support for Medicare for All and add co-sponsors to the bill.


Here’s what you can do:

Contact Rep. Chellie Pingree to thank her for being a co-sponsor and urge her to push her colleagues to support the bills.

Jared Golden was a co-sponsor of an earlier Medicare for All bill but has since dropped his support. He has indicated that he won’t co-sponsor the bill this year, but we can still tell Rep. Golden we want him to support Medicare for All! When he released his “healthcare roadmap” in 2019, he said,

“Medicare for All would transform our healthcare system to make it work for everyday people, instead of today’s system that works to maximize profits for insurance and pharmaceutical companies, and the healthcare lobby. … pushing for universal health coverage is the right thing to do, and it’s the right direction for America. I am committed to the long fight to ensure that all Mainer’s [sic] and all Americans have affordable coverage, because an equal chance at a healthy life should be a right, not a privilege.”

We want him to stand by these words, or explain to Mainers why he has backed away from this position.

Tell Senators Angus King and Susan Collins that we want—we need—Improved Medicare for All.

Thank you!!!
