How to Contact Congress

Contact Congress! 

With  your help we can send a strong message to elected officials that their constituents, and the vast majority of the U.S. public, want single-payer national health insurance, an improved “Medicare for All.”

Call and email Congress over the next few weeks and especially on January 20, 2017 . Tell your representatives that our dysfunctional system of financing through private insurers must be replaced by an efficient and equitable single-payer system.

We want to reach all members of Congress with our message. 

Every call and email counts.

I am writing to voice my strong opposition to repealing the Affordable Care Act. In fact, I believe that single payer is the only option that will both provide universal coverage, and contain skyrocketing healthcare costs. The majority of Americans and physicians support a national health insurance program like improved Medicare for everyone. The proposed GOP Care which involves a repeal of the ACA and letting market forces determine care is unconscionable and unacceptable. I urge you to support Medicare for All.
