Our mission is to elect Bernie Sanders president. In the process, we will mobilize health workers to advance a multi-issue progressive agenda grounded in massive public investment to deliver on the material needs of our patients. Well-organized healthcare workers will be essential on day one of a Sanders presidency, when the struggle for justice and equality will truly begin.
A single-payer, Medicare for All system would improve on our current Medicare program to include all Americans and cover medical, dental, vision, and long term care. It would eliminate the barriers to care that include premiums, co-pays, and deductibles. It would be paid through payroll taxes, and 90% of Americans would see overall savings and increased access. And Bernie wrote the damn bill.
We are doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals who are tired of seeing our patients falling through the cracks of our broken healthcare system. We want a more equitable system for people that doesn't punish them with co-pays and deductibles for getting sick. We support Sen Bernie Sanders's plan for Medicare for All, and are committed to supporting his candidacy for President of the United States.
