Medicare for All Event
Nurses in Portland turned out for Medicare for All in Portland on January 15th. We must continue to work for reform that is universal and doesn't leave a system that bankrupts families or leaves patients at the mercy of profit-based insurance companies. An expanded and improved Medicare for All program will be far more efficient in controlling costs and will eliminate the waste that goes to insurance paperwork and profits. A Medicare for All program will save lives.
