The national consensus around Medicare for All is growing, with 85% of Democrats and 52% of Republicans in support. Join us as we hit the streets of North Philly and help us spread the word about why the United States needs Medicare for All.

MILLIONS IN OUR COUNTRY HAVE NO HEALTHCARE AT ALL. Those who are insured have seen steady increases in costs and decreases in care. Increased premiums go to multi-million dollar CEO salaries, lawyers, lobbyists, and advertising rather than actual care and services. We need a single, universal system with comprehensive coverage that is free at the point of service. 

A Single Payer/Medicare for All system is the only answer. There are no deductibles, no premiums and no co-pays. You go to the doctor of your choice.Dental,vision,mental health, and pharmaceuticals are all included. It’s time to put the health of working-class people before the profits of insurance companies. Canvass for Medicare for All! 

Medicare-for-All is a program to truly make sure that everyone has access to any and all medical services regardless of their ability to pay. We believe in the following vision for healthcare: 
● A Universal Program — ​everyone will be covered by one healthcare system and have equal access to all medical services and treatments. 
● Comprehensive Coverage — ​all services requiring a medical professional will be fully covered. 
● Free at the point of service — all healthcare costs will be financed through tax contributions based on abilityto pay, no out of pocket payments for services or treatments. 
● Coverage for all U.S. residents — ​non-citizens included. 
● Jobs — ​a jobs initiative and severance for those affected by the transition to government-run healthcare. 

If you want to make this vision a reality come canvass with DSA! Whether this is your first time organizing or you’re a veteran canvasser, join us for a short training and then hit the streets!
