Even before the COVID-19 pandemic produced the greatest public health crisis in recent U.S. history, healthcare was the leading issue for Democratic primary voters. This was due to widespread recognition of the failings of our current system -- such as inadequate care, excessive cost, unnecessary bureaucracy, frequent denial of coverage, and constant insecurity.

According to exit polls, a significant majority of all Democratic primary voters supported the adoption of a universal single-payer Medicare for All system, which would address all of these problems.1 That was before the crisis.

The COVID-19 pandemic has since exposed the failings of our healthcare system like never before. Now, support for Medicare for All is soaring; with sky-high levels of support among Democrats2 and a sizable majority among the general public.3

Medicare for All is the moral choice.

It saves lives.

It's also a landslide winning issue.

For the sake of our general welfare, and for defeating Donald Trump, we call upon the Democratic Party to include Medicare for All in the 2020 Democratic Party platform.
