Medicare for All Town Hall with Michael Lighty
As the 2020 election cycle approaches, political elites will do everything in their power to distract from the demand for a universal, single-payer insurance system, and to water down the solution with “moderate,” “market-friendly” approaches. Perhaps no other demand since the postwar era has provoked as powerful an opposition as the demand for Medicare for All. The ruling class knows just how much the socialization of health insurance threatens its power.
Come out to hear labor and healthcare leaders on why we must demand nothing less than Medicare for All, and how we can fight to keep this the defining issue of our political moment.
With powerful donors lined up in opposition to single-payer and prominent Democrats either cagily supporting Medicare for All or actively attempting to undermine it with counterfeit copycat legislation, it’s clear that we cannot trust establishment politicos to give the people what we overwhelmingly demand.
That’s why we need to come out swinging and this town hall will help launch a new push to move Medicare for All from a demand to reality.
