[Add your name] The time to expand Medicare is NOW

Right now, Senate Democrats are putting together a budget package that includes expanding Medicare coverage to dental, vision, and hearing. This will be a huge help to countless seniors across Oregon.

But it's not enough. We have a real opportunity to improve health care for 23 million people right now by lowering the eligibility age to 60. Peter has always fought to expand Medicare. He cosponsored the Medicare for All Act and is a cofounder of the Medicare for All caucus in the House. Now, Congress can take a big step forward.

Tell Congress: Lower the Medicare eligibility age and expand Medicare NOW!

Health care is still just too expensive for most Americans. That's because we have a corporate system where for-profit insurance companies prioritize their bottom line over patients' health.

Think about that: To insurance corporations, our lives rank below the bottom.

The time is now to lower the eligibility age and give more Oregonians access to affordable healthcare via Medicare.

Add your name today and tell Congress: Lower the Medicare eligibility age and expand Medicare NOW!

Our movement is 100 percent committed to lowering health care costs for Oregonians. Let's get it done!
