Doctors and Health Workers Endorse Senator Bernard Sanders

image32

We, the undersigned, are members of Doctors for Bernie, a volunteer group of doctors and health workers, who believe that Senator Bernard Sanders has the boldest vision to improve the health of our nation. As caretakers of the health and well-being of our patients, we find many reasons to support Bernie’s candidacy. First and foremost, we bear witness to the devastation caused by our for-profit healthcare system and trust the candidate who has been fighting for Medicare for All his entire political career. We believe that access to healthcare is a human right and half-measures like a public option will only add more fragmentation, waste, and inequality to our already dysfunctional, two-tiered system of care. Additionally, we witness the impacts of housing insecurity, malnutrition, poverty, and racism on our patients' health and support the candidate who is most committed to addressing economic inequality and structural racism by proposing bold, progressive policies and leading a broad multi-racial, working class movement for change. Because of these reasons and more, we endorse Bernie Sanders for President of the United States and are committed to tirelessly organizing on his behalf. #NotMeUs
