CREDO To Join Medicare-For-All Push If SCOTUS Guts ‘Obamacare’

Progressive Advocacy Group To Join Medicare-For-All Push If SCOTUS Guts ‘Obamacare’

The progressive advocacy group CREDO Action will be part of a growing coalition of groups pressing Democrats to embrace Medicare for All if the Supreme Court strikes or guts the Affordable Care Act.

“We need to do now what we should have done then – go for a single-payer healthcare system,” said Becky Bond, Political Director of CREDO Action. “Medicare is popular. It’s constitutional. It works. Americans need Medicare for all.”

From the (possible) letter CREDO will send supporters Thursday: “America’s health care system is in crisis, there’s no more time for half-measures and unworkable compromises when we know Medicare already works. Medicare is extremely popular and unquestionably constitutional. We should open it to everyone: It’s time for Medicare for All.”

3. How about joining the push for Medicate-For-All, regardless?

 

Still, it's a move in the right direction.

4. +1

They should be pushing this regardless of the ruling. Only something like single-payer health care can stop the 100,000 needless deaths per year due to lack of health care in the U.S..

That's like multiple 9/11s each year. Where's the outrage?
