Over 46 million Americans lack health insurance. A comparable number are underinsured. Those with insurance are paying more in premiums and more out-of-pocket as well. And even the insured may face bankruptcy if they get sick. Many have to choose between paying for medicine and paying for food and housing.
A national, universal, single-payer health care program, or Improved Medicare for All, as defined by U.S. House Bill H.R. 676, would create a publicly financed, privately delivered health care system that builds on the existing Medicare program. It would improve and expand Medicare to cover all U.S. residents.
It's time to choose people over profits!
