Support an act establishing Medicare for all 

Published: 10/24/2021 3:36:07 PM

As the only industrialized country in the world that does not provide health care as a human right to its citizens, we bear a financial burden that can be devastating for many of us. We have a chance to change this in Massachusetts. We have shown, through warrant articles in many towns in Western Mass., that there is overwhelming support for this legislation. We have shown the vast sums of money that could be saved by families, towns and businesses if this legislation is enacted.

Massachusetts can become, once again, a pioneer in health care insurance. This legislation creates the Massachusetts Health Care Trust Fund that ensures universal coverage and eliminates premiums, deductibles, co-pays, etc., for all medically necessary care, from seeing doctors of your choice to hospitalization, from essential care for dental, vision, hearing, mental health, and substance abuse to prescription drugs and devices. Now, more than ever, the current COVID-19 pandemic proves how desperately we need to have a universal health care system that places people’s health and well-being before corporate profits.

I encourage readers to let your legislators know that you support this legislation and I invite you to attend the virtual hearing on the bill on October 26 and/or to submit oral and/or written testimony. For updated information, please visit: https://bit.ly/3prEcAB
