This is Go Time

This is go time- Medicare for All will be reintroduced in both the House and Senate in 8 days, which means now is a crucial time to contact your members of Congress to make sure they sign on as an original cosponsor of the bill. To catch you up: In each new session of Congress, the Medicare for All Act must be reintroduced, and all members of Congress must sign on (or back on) as cosponsors of the bill. Can you take three minutes to call your members of Congress today to ask them to sign on as a Medicare for All cosponsor? https://bit.ly/3ppmtvN You can find the number and a sample script below: → HOUSE: (202) 858-1717 ← → SENATE: (202) 519-0494 ← You will hear a short message; then we’ll connect you directly with your House rep and senators. Hi, my name is ______, and I'm calling from ________. I'm calling to urge [NAME] to cosponsor the Medicare for All Act when it is reintroduced in Congress on May 17. Health care is a human right that must be guaranteed for all – and Medicare for All is the only policy solution that will achieve guaranteed health care for all people. Will they commit to being an original cosponsor on the bill? Thank you. TELL US HOW IT WENT » These calls are tremendously important, William. Together we can make sure that Medicare for All gets as much, or even more, support than it did last time it was introduced in Congress. But it will take all of us making calls, writing letters, meeting with representatives, and more. Your reps need to hear from you, and all their constituents. We need you to call right now and to share this call to action with your friends and networks in your district. Please make a call today to help us secure as many cosponsors on the new Medicare for All bill as possible. Thank you for taking the time.
