Peter DeFazio for Congress

The newest member of the Medicare for All Caucus

I'm a proud member of the newly formed Medicare for All Caucus. I fought to improve and expand access to affordable health care long before the caucus was formed.

When the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was being written, I led the battle to include a single-payer public option in the ACA, which was unfortunately stripped from the final version of the Senate bill. The ACA was a good start to increasing and expanding coverage, but we must go further!

Health care is a human right.

That's why I'm a co-sponsor of the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. Passing Medicare for All will provide more people coverage and will cut out the for-profit insurance industry, lower costs, and lower payouts for wealthy insurance CEOs.

It's time to join the rest of the industrialized world and provide affordable universal health care coverage. Help me spread this news to gain support and put pressure on Republicans in Congress to bring a vote on Medicare for All to the House floor!

Thanks for your support.

Peter
