4. READ MORE with Video & Ady Barkan's FULL SPEECH below:



> Excerpt: "For my family, although we have comparatively good private health insurance, ALS now means paying out of pocket for almost 24-hour home care. This costs us nine thousand dollars, every month. The alternative is for me to go on Medicare and move into a nursing home, away from my wife and my son. So we are cobbling together the money, from friends and family and supporters all over the country. But this is an absurd way to run a healthcare system. GoFundMe is a terrible substitute for smart Congressional action.

Like so many others, Rachael and I have had to fight with our insurer, which has issued outrageous denials instead of covering the benefits we’ve paid for. We have so little time left together, and yet our system forces us to waste it dealing with bills and bureaucracy. That is why I am here today, urging you to build a more rational, fair, efficient, and effective system. I am here today to urge you to enact Medicare For All. There are three simple reasons why Medicare For All is the right solution, the only solution, to what ails the American healthcare system. I will summarize them..."

> 'Medicare for All in Spotlight at Historic Congress. Hearing.' Video. "We are creating a movement that makes it clear that when we win Medicare for All, it will be because of the people's movement!"Rep. Jayapal, Common Dreams, 4/30/19.
