Great news! I'm co-sponsoring Bernie's bill

Don't you think that everyone should have guaranteed access to affordable health care when they need it just by virtue of living in America?

I do, and that's why I've joined Sen. Bernie Sanders to co-sponsor his Medicare-for-all bill. It's past time we treated health care as a human right, not as a luxury.

Right now, working people are stuck with a patchwork of confusing insurance plans and networks that produce anxiety and stress instead of peace of mind. But I know more people than ever support our progressive plan to make health care accessible to all Americans, not just those who can afford it.

Chip in $3 now to build our movement for Medicare-for-all!

Sen. Bernie Sanders and I have long supported a single payer option to increase competition and make health care more fair, more affordable, and less confusing.

We know we've got a tough hill to climb. There are plenty of powerful interests with big teams of lobbyists and unlimited campaign contributions who don't want change.

That's why we need you fighting with us. Grassroots America beat back the disastrous Republican WealthCare plan and now we need to go further. It's going to take everything we've got to make Medicare-for-all a reality and ensure every American, regardless of their income, is covered for life.

Let's build on our momentum and make it happen: Donate $3 now for quality, affordable health care for all!
