CONYERS: Medicare For All

The Senate GOP and House Republicans so-called healthcare bill still imposes the same barbaric cuts to Medicaid that will end the program as we know it.

It’s no exaggeration to say that if this bill passes, poor and working people will suffer and many will die. Their bill still ends protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

It allows insurance companies to offer barebones plans that hardly count as “insurance” and don’t provide meaningful care. Meanwhile, for people with pre-existing conditions who need real medical care, insurers will offer plans with sky high prices most cannot afford.

Most importantly, their bill still does nothing to make access to quality healthcare more affordable for you and your family.

Fortunately, Democrats have a better plan: Medicare for All When every American can enroll in Medicare for All, you won’t have to shop and compare between 50 different plans with terms and rules nobody can understand.

No more getting nickel-and-dimed with premiums, copays and deductibles.

No more fighting with insurance companies over denied claims, or surprise bills for things you were never asked about.

No more holding your care hostage for executive salaries, advertising costs, and profit margins. Instead, just like the fire department, schools, roads, and bridges, we’re going to treat healthcare as an essential serviced provided equally to all people.

My Medicare for All bill is the Democratic alternative to Trumpcare.

After we’ve defeated this awful Trumpcare bill, we will fight tirelessly until we make Medicare for All a reality.
