A new coalition has come together to celebrate Medicare’s 56th birthday and to renew the push for Medicare For All (M4A) in this time of the pandemic.  There will be marches or rallies in over 50 cities this Saturday, July 24.  We urge our readers to participate in your city or a city near you.  You can click on the list of cities below for local details.   We have reproduced below the call of the new coalition organizing these marches.
Help Celebrate Medicare’s Birthday, This Saturday, July 24th, in Your City or A City Near You
A coalition of groups has come together to march for Medicare for All.  Who is in that coalition depends on which city you are talking about.  There is no one single group behind this.  The list seems to grow every day. Some people are even politically homeless and simply focused on doing what they can to move #M4A forward.  We are nonpartisan, but some local parties have joined in the fight!  We are proud to say that this type of coming together hasn’t happened in recent memory, if ever.
Our movement was founded from a place of compassion and love.  We came together out of frustration with the lack of action from the powers that be.  Many of us have our own personal stories as to why we are in this fight.  All of us know that healthcare is a right, not a privilege.  It is a basic freedom.  How can we have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness when we live in constant fear of illness, bankruptcy, or homelessness because of the outrageous for-profit healthcare system.
One illness can ruin your life, even if you have insurance.  The industry can always say no.  We need a big fat yes!  Whatever you and your doctor decide is best for your health should be what is done.  No more pre- authorizations, deductibles, out of pocket expenses etc. etc.  These are all barriers to the care we deserve.  Nearly 70,000 times a year or more, someone dies because of these barriers to care.  This is unacceptable.
Join the Mobilization for National Improved Medicare for All now in over 50 Cities.
