MEDICARE FOR ALL BILLS
A HISTORIC MOMENT FOR OUR NATION
PAVING THE ROAD TO A SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
A PATH TO HEALTH AND SECURITY
There are currently two Medicare for All bills being considered in Congress that have the potential for paving the road for a single payer health care system in the United States. This is a historic moment in our nation's history. A single-payer health care system is one in which a single, government-run health plan provides insurance coverage for all Americans.
This report will cover Bernie Sanders' and Representative Pramila Jayapal's plans.

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) released his Medicare for All Plan on April 10th, 2019,. This plan will be an important part of his 2020 Presidential Campaign. The goal of this plan is to create a government-run system to provide health insurance for all Americans. The Sanders bill will also cover long-term care for people with disabilities. Sanders hopes embracing a sweeping change in the American health care system will help separate him from a crowded primary field.
