Eight strong single payer advocates gathered today, including four from NJUHC, to meet with Congressman Bill Pascrell, NJ-9.
He sits on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, so it is important to win his support for Medicare for All. He asserted that he would not support Jayapal’s new bill, Medicare for All Act of 2019 (HR1384), because he supports a public option for people 50 and over. He did agree to meet again in three weeks.
NOW’S THE TIME TO CALL AND TELL PASCRELL A LIMITED MEDICARE BUY-IN WON’T DO. Call 202-858-1717 today!
The Medicare buy-in he proposes for people 50 and over will attract those with the most difficulty finding affordable coverage, leaving those who are more profitable for the private insurance industry! It won’t provide universal coverage and quality care to everyone!
