This July 30 marks Medicare’s 48th anniversary. To celebrate, we’re working with our network of hundreds of activist to help organize dozens of actions across the country–including rallies, teach-ins, and speak outs.
Medicare has reduced poverty among the elderly by two-thirds since it was introduced and it remains extremely popular — 58 percent of people want NO cuts to Medicare or Social Security.
Actions organized in July come at a crucial period as Congress proposes cuts to Medicare and Social Security to reach a “grand bargain” to replace automatic cuts already underway through a process of sequestration. We can’t allow that to happen. The solution we all know is improved and expanded Medicare-for-all.
It’s up to us to use Medicare’s anniversary, and the implementation of Obamacare, to educate our communities on single-payer and motivate our friends and neighbors to take action.
The wonderful folks at Single Payer Now in California are willing to match every dollar you donate up to $1,000, and they will match monthly recurring donations at $10 for every $1 per month you donate (a $20 recurring donation will trigger a $200 match!).
All donors receive a discounted registration for our National Strategy Conference this October in Nashville, TN–we’ll send out more information about that soon!
You can donate online, send a check to Healthcare-NOW!, 1315 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107, or call 800-453-1305.
Thank you so much for your support.
