Help build momentum for H.R. 676

HR676_Thermometer

Encourage your member of Congress to cosponsor the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act

Now that the American people (and, thankfully, Congress) have thoroughly rejected the American Health Care Act, it's time to enact legislation that would truly address our ongoing health care crisis, and provide the type of universal, comprehensive, accessible coverage that the Affordable Care Act failed to deliver.

The only solution is to enact a single-payer national health program, and H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, would do just that. The bill has been introduced in every Congress since 2003 by Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) and has just reached a high-water mark in terms of cosponsors.

Let's keep the momentum going. See below for a list of current cosponsors, as well as a list of members who have cosponsored in the past, or who are likely to cosponsor this time around. It's important to build as much support for H.R. 676 as possible, and you can help!

1) Click here to find your member of Congress. You should be able to access your member's website from here, which will include contact information.

2) If your member of Congress has already cosponsored H.R. 676, call and email to thank them. Also, encourage them to recruit their colleagues as cosponsors and to speak out  publically in support of the bill.

3) If your member of Congress has not cosponsored H.R. 676, and is on the target list below, call and email to encourage them to cosponsor. We have provided links with contact info for these members.

4) If your member of Congress has not cosponsored H.R. 676, and is not on the target list below, call and email to express your support for the bill. Let them know you are a politically active constituent and brief them on why they should support single payer.

If you have trouble locating contact information for your representative, you can always call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Thank you!
