It's time for legislators to prove democracy exists by passing Medicare for All

NNU Executive Director, Bonnie Castillo, RN at bill introduction

On Feb. 27, U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal introduced the Medicare for All Act of 2019, H.R. 1384, which builds upon years of a growing, grassroots social movement led by nurses like Reding.

We nurses know and believe that this is the best bill at the right time for moving America forward. Jayapal’s legislation is the most comprehensive to date, including all primary care, hospital and outpatient services, prescription drugs, dental, vision, women’s reproductive services, maternity and newborn care, mental health, long-term services and supports for people with disabilities.
