Don’t believe the critics. Medicare for All is the most realistic way to win universal, equitable health care.
Bernie Sanders delivered a major speech on Medicare for All yesterday. He knows who his enemies are: the pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, and their friends in elected office — and he's spoiling for a fight with them.
Medicare for All is not just about fixing our broken health-care system. It’s about unlocking the power of a mass, working-class movement in the United States.
A Medicare for All system would benefit almost everyone in America — except health care profiteers. The only way to overcome their opposition is to build a mass movement that’s large enough and powerful enough to defeat them.
Kamala Harris has long claimed to be a supporter of Medicare for All. But the rollout of her new health-care plan finally gives us clarity: she will fight on behalf of insurance companies, not against them.
Paul Krugman and other critics of Medicare for All are relying on falsehoods to promote a "Medicare for America" faux-alternative.
Whatever her intentions, Elizabeth Warren’s reversal from immediately pushing for Medicare for All to first passing a public option as part of a longer-term phase-in will sideline our movement — and fail to move us closer to achieving either program.
Joe Biden keeps lying about Medicare for All and won’t stop anytime soon — he has to, to sell his own Bidencare plan. But Medicare for All will always win on the merits.
Donald Trump is touting Medicare Advantage as a way to protect Medicare and save it from “socialist destruction.” But the only thing hurting most seniors is privatization — because enhanced “choice” in the insurance market only ever benefits rich, healthy people.
Medicare for All backers won in safe Democratic districts and Trump country alike this year, while its opponents lost in both. Yet centrists are now leading a campaign to blame M4A for the party’s devastating down-ballot losses this year. They’re wrong.
As Medicare for All gets more and more popular, both Republicans and Democrats in Congress are desperate for more and more ways to water it down.
“Medicare for All isn’t politically viable” is the refrain from the pundits. But how many non-pundits have they actually talked to about Medicare for All? Democratic Socialists of America activists have been going door-to-door talking to thousands — here’s what they’ve been hearing.
Elizabeth Warren’s stance on health care reform has been murky throughout her campaign, so her health care plank announced last week was welcome. Unfortunately, that plank still doesn’t answer some fundamental questions about where exactly she stands on Medicare for All.
I support Medicare for All because it’s for everyone — but it’s especially important for gay and transgender people. It should be a central demand of the movement for our liberation.
Medicare for All would be a huge boon for American workers, both unionized and nonunion. So why has American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten — whose own union endorsed single-payer last year — spent the week arguing against Medicare for All?
With Kamala Harris out of the race and Elizabeth Warren’s numbers dropping, recent weeks haven’t been kind to candidates who have equivocated on Medicare for All. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate whose support for M4A is solid and unchanging — a stance that’s not only morally correct but politically smart.
On Medicare for All, the Left has won the battle of ideas. But that’s not enough, as the DNC’s rejection of M4A shows. We have to get serious about overcoming the entrenched economic and political power that is stopping us from having free public health care for everyone.
A new report shows that union health plans, while better than employer-sponsored health care, pale in comparison to Medicare for All. The labor movement should take notice: union members would be better off with M4A than the health plans they have to fight so hard to protect.
Democrats bankrolled by Big Pharma are suddenly targeting Nina Turner — right after she aired an ad touting Medicare for All.
House committee hearings for Medicare for All are finally starting today. It’s a testament to M4A’s rising popularity — but overcoming opposition from Republicans, Democrats, and the health care companies will require a mass movement.
