National Nurses United to speak at Medicare for All town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Pramila Jayapal
National Nurses United (NNU), the largest union of registered nurses in the nation, will be participating in a town hall in support of Medicare for All with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center on Tuesday, May 16 at 7:30 pm. Sen. Sanders, Rep. Jayapal, and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) will be introducing Medicare for All legislation in Congress on May 17.
NNU President Nancy Hagans, RN, will be speaking at this event and scores of nurses will be in attendance. “Every day nurses see patients who delay lifesaving health care or can’t afford their medications,” said Hagans. “Tens of millions of Americans have no health insurance or are under-insured. The pandemic underscored the dire costs when people cannot access quality, therapeutic health care. This is why we need Medicare for All.
“We deeply appreciate Sen. Sanders, Rep. Jayapal, and Rep. Dingell for introducing Medicare for All legislation.”
