Calling On National Democratic Party To Include Medicare For All In 2016 DNC Platform - Petition

Health & Wellness  (tags: Medicare for All, Universal Health Care, petition, National Nurses United )

- 853 days ago -
Health care is a fundamental human right and an important measure of social justice. Achieving universal health care will not come from mandating everyone to buy a health insurance policy from a private insurance company.

Thing can be on the platform and candidates can make promises...but action won't soon be forthcoming. So tired of empty promises. Seems only Bernie would have kept his. Thanx Dandelion.

I know Sheila, it seems so little, but sometimes we have to take any win we can. It will be something in writing, it is something that can be referred to. We have young activist growing up, they can look at it, and then look at the Party and say to themselves - are they doing that? Any of it? Trying to go there? I believe it sets the stage for the future.

And if we get real lucky, maybe some more of the Democrats might get a nudge and say, oh yes, that is a good guide and what I was suppose to be doing. Maybe the light will come on over someone's head. We can hope.

The Swedish people are very smart the Americans are confused at best. Too many still believe the Corporate propaganda that the end of the world will happen if we become a sane and caring Country.

Bernie is the only candidate that I truly trust to be for the people and not the corporations. It would be awesome if we could just catch up to the rest of the world, wouldn't it?

It sure would, but the Corporate in combination with other Countries leadership, is trying to make those Nations more like us. This cancer spreads......

Signed Sheryl Our former Labor P.M. Gough Wiitlam in introduced Medibank in 1975 It was privatized b by the next Liberal party which is not a strong supporter of a free welfare system and restored by the next Labor leader Bob Hawke and renamed Medicare,.Let's hope it remains unaltered if the Liberal party win our next election

I have supported single payer insurance and Medicare since Obamacare came into the picture. It is the only thing and the proper thing to do for ALL citizens of the USA. Unfortunately, the right wingers are fighting the concept and for what? To save insurance companies and hospitals who charge "juge" fees and prices? This isn't a liberal or conservative issue, it is a human rights issue. We must assure the safety and welfare of our own citizens.
