It isn’t right that in the richest country on Earth, 28 million Americans live without health insurance, we pay more for health care than any other industrialized country, but have worse health outcomes across the board. We can change that. We can pass Medicare-for-All and ensure that every American, no matter how rich or poor, has medical care.

We can create a system of guaranteed, lifetime health insurance by expanding Medicare to all Americans.
