Tell CT House Democrats: Sign H.R. 676 Medicare For All
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
Rep. John Conyers’ (D-MI) H.R. 676 expands Medicare to all Americans -- legislation that would finally catch the U.S. up to the rest of the modern world where healthcare is a built-in right of citizenship.
While a record-breaking 112 House Democrats (including representatives from Georgia, Mississippi and Texas) have co-sponsored the bill, not a single U.S. House member from our blue state supports it. Even Rep. DeLauro, a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), has failed to sign despite the bill enjoying the CPC's official endorsement.
No one understands more the problems with the Connecticut Exchange than those of us relying on it for healthcare. After just three years, members are left with two of our original four providers and premiums have spiked upwards of 25%. Anthem is currently asking to raise our premiums by 33.8% in 2018; ConnectiCare by 17.5%.
Connecticut residents have called, emailed and urged our representatives in town halls throughout the state to join their Democratic colleagues in this legislative movement; a movement that reflects a groundswell of public support at 60% of all voters and a staggering 85% of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents.
Add your name to demand that Representatives John Larson (CT-1), Joe Courtney (CT-2), Rosa DeLauro (CT-3), Jim Himes (CT-4) and Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) work for the will of their voters and sign H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act.
