Enact Universal, Single-Payer Medicare for All

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, urge The President and The United States Congress to pass H.R. 676, a single-payer Medicare-for-all program which will provide comprehensive health insurance coverage for all Americans.
There are currently 329 signatures. NEW goal - We need 400 signatures!

Petition Background

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!
