Medicare for All to be Re-Introduced in House, Senate

May 11, 2023

On Wednesday, May 17, Medicare for All legislation will be re-introduced into both the U.S. House and Senate. Call your U.S. Senators and Representative today and ask them to be original co-sponsors of this important legislation:

  • Call your Senators: 202-519-0494
  • Call your House Rep: 202-858-1717

Our health care system fails to provide quality care to every U.S. resident and wastes hundreds of billions of dollars a year in unnecessary administrative costs. The COVID-19 pandemic has only further highlighted the need to completely overhaul U.S. health care. A Medicare for All single-payer system — supported by UE since 1943 — would expand and improve the cost-effective and administratively efficient Medicare program to finance comprehensive, high-quality health care for everybody in the U.S.

Take three minutes to make a call to your US Senators and Representative to ask that they sign on as an original cosponsor! Once you dial each hotline, you will hear a brief recorded message with instructions on what to say. When prompted, enter your zip code, and you will be connected to the office of your representative. If your state has two Democratic Senators, please call back again and you’ll be connected to the other office.

Sample Script:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [CITY/TOWN]. I'm calling to urge [NAME] to cosponsor the Medicare for All Act of 2023. Health care is a human right that must be guaranteed for all — and Medicare for All is the only policy solution to achieve guaranteed health care for all. Will they commit to cosponsoring the bill? Thank you.
