‘I can’t afford that’: A viral tweet shows why we need Medicare for all

The concept of “having skin in the game” is popular among those who still believe we can utilize the free market to rein in the cost of health care in the United States. The idea is that if people have to pay a decent percentage of the cost of medical care, they will turn into savvy medical shoppers when they need to see a doctor.

Love It! Improve It! Medicare For All!

What the midterms taught us: A ‘PEOPLE’S WAVE’ is rising. And we WILL win Medicare for All.

From record voter turnout — to mass grassroots door knocking, phone banking and volunteering, the win the pundits overlooked is the win of a rising “people’s wave.” This mass movement, a rebuke to the corporate agenda, is not beholden to election cycles or candidates, but rather to the issues themselves, from health care; to environmental, racial and economic justice; to voting rights.
