This summer our focus moves to federal legislation, where major health care gains are possible if enough people raise our voices to support what healthcare champions in Congress have proposed to be included in the American Families Plan.

Thanks to everyone who attended our Teach-In!  Here is everything you need to follow up and dig into the rich information presented. Let’s dive in.

Here’s Representative Jayapal’s video message to our teach-in.

If you missed it, here’s the complete recording and slides. And finally, here’s the one-pager on the “Medicare Cliff ” presented by Ann Vining of Northwest Health Law Advocates.

We must keep the pressure on the rest of the WA House delegation to join prime sponsor Jayapal and co-sponsor Smith in co-sponsoring HR 1976, the Medicare for All Act of 2021. This is the best and most economical proposal to provide comprehensive, affordable and equitable health care to everyone in our country.

➤  Sen. Sanders will reintroduce his Senate companion bill soon, and we will continue to urge Senators Murray and Cantwell to get on board!

Majority Leader Senator Schumer supports Senator Bernie Sanders’ plan to expand Medicare to include Vision, Dental and Hearing benefits. Senator Schumer says there must be an outpouring of grassroots support. We can help out with that!

Our message: “Please support lower drug prices, improving Medicare benefits and lowering the eligibility age, as called for by 155+ Congressional Representatives in their May 27th letter to the President. It is overwhelmingly popular with seniors. The time to act is now.”

➤ Constituents of Rep. DelBene (CD-1) and Rep. Schrier (CD-8), call or email your rep. In 2019 they voted to support this approach. We need them back onboard now.

➤  Everyone, urge Senators Murray and Cantwell to champion Medicare expansion paid for by negotiating lower drug prices.

➤ Constituents of Herrera Beutler (CD-3)Newhouse (CD-4), and McMorris Rodgers (CD-5), call or email your rep. They need to know that their own constituents support this.

➤ Constituents of Reps. Larsen (CD-2)Kilmer (CD-6)Jayapal (CD-7) or Smith (CD-9)Strickland (CD-10), thank your Rep for signing the May 27 letter.
