Progressive Public Health and Environmental Scorecard

Submitted by kblatt on July 18, 2018

To build an equal and just society in which every person can live a healthy life, Members of Congress must support bold progressive policies that address the public health and environmental crises that are ripping our country apart. National Nurses United, Food & Water Watch, and Progressive Democrats of America have compiled a progressive report card that shows where elected officials stand on critical healthcare and environmental legislation. In the scorecard below, you can see whether the members of the House of Representatives from your state and district are truly working for you, your family and your community.

Please use this report card as a tool to hold your Members of Congress accountable for their legislative record – write to them, call their offices, or tweet to them, and ask them to support these critical reforms. If your legislator is already a champion on these issues, send them a message to thank them for their support.

  • H.R.676 – Expanded & Improved Medicare For AllToday’s healthcare system fails to provide quality, therapeutic healthcare to tens of millions of people in the US. Because of the for-profit health insurance model, tens of millions of people don’t have health insurance, and tens of millions more cannot afford the costs of healthcare even though they have insurance. This legislation would establish a federal Medicare for All program to ensure every person in the U.S. has quality healthcare. A Medicare for All system would provide healthcare based on patient need, not on corporate profit. Full Bill Text»
  • H.R.1144 – Inclusive Prosperity ActThis bill would establish a small speculation tax on Wall Street financial transactions, which would help stabilize the market and generate an estimated $320 billion in revenue per year. That revenue would fund free tuition at public colleges and universities, guaranteed healthcare for all, affordable housing, the eradication the AIDS pandemic, climate change prevention, infrastructure development, and job creation through green infrastructure programs.

  • H.R.2392 – Nurse Staffing Standards for Hospital Patient Safety & Quality CareRight now, there are no federal standards regulating the number of patients a registered nurse can care for at one time in US hospitals. As a result, nurses are regularly required to care for more patients than is safe, compromising patient care. This legislation would protect patients and improve healthcare by setting mandated, minimum registered nurse to patient staffing ratios. Full Bill Text»
  • H.R.3671 – Off Fossil Fuels for a Better FutureFrom fires to floods to hurricanes, the impacts of climate change on the health and safety our communities and all people on the planet continues to escalate. Science has conclusively shown that dependence on fossil fuels is leading to massive changes in climate patterns. The OFF Act will rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other forms of pollutions by ensuring a complete and just transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy resources by 2035 with the bulk of reductions happening in the next decade.

  • H.R.5609 – Water Affordability, Transparency, Equity, & ReliabilityAcross the country, water infrastructure is crumbling, and millions of people lack reliable access to safe, drinkable, water. This legislation would provide the major financial investment needed to update our water infrastructure, repairing old and lead-ridden water pipes, stopping sewage overflows, and allowing for affordable water services for everyone, while also creating nearly a million jobs.
