Why do We Want Medicare for All?

We’ll answer this with another question: What is Medicare for All in the first place?

According to Senator Bernie Sanders’ website, Medicare for All is an initiative to provide comprehensive health care to every person in this country – without the financial burden of out-of-pocket expenses. For the average person, this means no more dealing with private insurers, no more insurance premiums, no deductibles or co-payments, and the ability to receive medical care at any time – regardless of your income, budget, and illness.

So, why do we want Medicare for All?

This website will explore some of the popular positions for and against Medicare for All. We’ll answer some of the initiative’s most important questions, provide examples of where Medicare for All can help folks, and do a cost breakdown for how the United States can – and should – pay for this program.
