State Legislators to WA Congressional Delegation: We need additional state waivers to create a universal health plan


Thank you to our state and federal lawmakers and labor leaders who joined the panel at our August 24 forum, and to all those who attended.

The state legislators were very clear that we need Congress to create additional state waivers to enable WA to guarantee affordable, equitable health care for all Washingtonians.

Please urge our Members of Congress and Senators to advance the State Based Universal Health Care Act, H.R. 3775 to support WA and other states ready to create universal healthcare plans.

☎️ Call U.S. Congressional Switchboard: (202) 224-3121. It takes 5 minutes to call your U.S. Senators and Representative.

National Week Of Action for Expanded Medicare


We had a BIG WIN on August 24 when the House passed a $3.5 trillion Budget Resolution on a party-line vote that preserves the healthcare priorities passed in the Senate’s Budget Resolution, including: negotiation of drug prices for Medicare and all private plans; expansion of Medicare benefits to include vision, hearing and dental; lowering the Medicare eligibility age; extending ACA plan subsidies, and more. These potential gains are threatened by corporate lobbyists as the House committees decide soon what will be in the final Reconciliation package.

This is a moment when our grassroots voices can make the difference.

Take Action!

We are closer than ever to Improved and Expanded Medicare for All. Medicare Expansion and Rx Negotiations would be the most significant step taken since the ACA was passed. 

This week there is a national call to action — everyone, everyday, to take 5 minutes to make three calls – to your Senators and Representative.  Monday thru Thursday will highlight one of the priorities per day and Friday will ask for support for all of these healthcare priorities. Click the day below to see a brief script.

We’re also asking our member organizations to schedule social media posts each day or include the campaign in emails, using content from the daily links above. Be sure to like and repost posts you come across. THANK YOU!
