2020 Candidates Will Have to Choose a Side — the Health Insurance Industry or the People

Medicare For All

Try as elected officials might to pledge allegiance to both corporations and to people, it won’t work that way. Not anymore.

As leaders in the grassroots movement for single payer, registered nurses are looking forward to Medicare for All’s role in the coming election. America has not yet had a presidential election at a time when Medicare for All was a household concept. We’ve never yet started a presidential election cycle with 70 percent of the American people supporting Medicare for All.

This is all unprecedented. But this is where we are now. And there’s no going backward.
