I've dedicated myself to this effort, and it's been a founding principle for PDA since we began back in 2004. We are calling on the Democratic party to reflect the overwhelming consensus of Democrats who favor Medicare for All.
Help us persuade the Committee to join the vast majority of Americans (about 60%) who support improved Medicare for All because we know it would save lives and save money. Please contribute generously now, and get involved every way you can.
For Healthcare Not Warfare,
Donna Smith for Mike H, Judy, Mike F, Janis, Deb, Kim, Conor, Steve, and the whole PDA Family
