The question is not “do we want Bernie to run again?” The questions are “which candidate will fight for medicare for all, $15/hr min. wage, tuition free college, a green new deal, affordable housing and to end legalized corruption allowed by citizens united?” That candidate is Bernie. #Bernie2020

The question is not "do we want Bernie to run again?"

The question is not "which candidate is young enough or charismatic enough?"

The question is not "who looks better on camera?"

The question is which candidate has been consistently fighting without fail for the issues that are vital to the future of our country?

That candidate is Bernie.

He will never stop fighting for medicare for all. He will never compromise on $ 15/hr min. wage. He will not stop until all students, regardless of their family's income, have the opportunity to attend a public university so that they can achieve the success that they dream about.

Bernie has proven throughout his career that his vision and principles will not be compromised.

He is worthy of the democratic nomination for President.

Let's get it done, y'all. Time to get to work.

Medicare For All at the Women’s March January 19th (message from National Nurses United)

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Happy New Year!

As 2019 begins so does the start of the new congressional session in which the Democrats now control the House majority. Last week, we were greeted by exciting news that House Democrats intend to use their new majority to hold hearings on Medicare for All.

We want to be clear: these hearings are not in the House committees that will help us move this bill forward. We must still pressure key Democrats through the National Week of Action to ensure that hearings in committees of jurisdiction happen as well. However, these hearings are unprecedented and a victory in themselves — never in the history of Congress have hearings on Medicare for All been held. This development is a testament to the strength of our grassroots movement and emboldens our fight for a floor vote on HR 676 in this Congress.

We know that National Medicare for All Week of Action will be a moment for us to demonstrate the strength of our movement even further. But to make sure it is a success, we must work to spread the word as much as possible. To that end, we are encouraging supporters to save the date of the upcoming Women’s Marches planned for January 19th across the country.

These events will mark two years of resistance to the Trump presidency and for the first time ever, Medicare for All is officially part of the Women’s March platform. These events will be a major opportunity for us to connect with hundreds of people from our communities about the fight to win Medicare for All and how they can plug in.

Will you join Medicare for All activists across the country and attend your local Women’s March to recruit volunteers?

Get started with this easy-to-use guide that will help you have conversations with and sign up supporters of Medicare for All to join our organizing as we move forward.

Check out our Medicare for All Women’s March Guide

As always, we are honored to be a part of this movement alongside you.

Solidarity,
The Nurses' Campaign to Win Medicare for All

The GOP freaks out when Ocasio-Cortez & Bernie suggest a 50%-70% tax rate to pay for medicare for all & a green new deal. That 50-70% margin would ONLY impact 13,000 of the richest families. The GOP is paid to represent the interests of the 13K richest families. We represent the other 300+ million.

A tax of 50%-70% on all income over 10 million would only impact 13,000 of the richest families in the country.

The Republicans are paid to exclusively represent the interests of 13,000 of the world's wealthiest families.

Bernie and Ocasio-Cortez are here to represent the other 330+ million folks in America.

Which do you choose?

Anytime someone tells you the LIE that we “can’t afford” medicare for all, remind them that a family of 4 earning $50k/year would save nearly $5k/year. Premiums for the same family are almost $5k/year. Under M4A, the same family would pay $466 for BETTER coverage and no co-pays. #MedicareForAll

Read the plan and EDUCATE folks

Private insurance premiums for a family of 4 are around $ 5,000 per year. And those plans often do not cover dental and vision, and still leave families on the hook for co-pays.

Under Bernie's plan, a family of 4 would pay around $ 466 more per year in taxes (a savings of almost 5,000 per year when you consider how much they are paying in private premiums currently) and would receive WAY BETTER coverage.

You would have to be a moron to refuse better coverage for less money…

Do not let anyone claim we "cannot afford" medicare for all without pushing back against that bullshit.

And as for the tax burden that high earners would see, I'm not about to shed one single tear that someone earning 10 million is going to have to pay 52% in taxes on all income exceeding 10 million. Boo hoo, cry me a river.

Economists find that Medicare for All costs LESS than our current system, and yet insures ALL people in our country.

Medicare for All could reduce total health care spending in the U.S. by nearly 10 percent, to $ 2.93 trillion, while creating stable access to good care for all U.S. residents

Hold them accountable! Any Dem, in the house or senate, who caves & gives even one fucking dime to Trump’s wall needs to face a primary challenge in 2020. Bernie needs allies to fight with him for clean energy, infrastructure, medicare for all, not spineless cowards. #NotOneDime #FuckTheWall

Get on social media. Call your elected officials.

Not one fucking dime for this stupid wall.

Could progressives take advantage of budget gridlock to pass medicare for all?

I think Republicans could just be desperate enough to make a deal where they have to approve medicare expansion to the non-elderly. Trump insists he won't approve a budget without the wall and as stupid as the whole wall idea is, it might be worth letting him have it in order to pass single-payer (plus Republicans can say they repealed Obamacare). The only other likely path for passing a budget would be a bipartisan budget with veto-proof support, which could also happen given some GOP in congress also aren't big fans of the whole wall thing.
