CALL TO ACTION: Our Revolution to Rally for Medicare for All Act

Iowa chapters of Our Revolution have organized a series of public events opposing the UHCA and in support of HR 676, The Expanded and Improved
Medicare for All Act. Featured speakers will include healthcare professionals and local candidates and elected officials. Iowa chapters of
Democratic Socialists of America and Americans for Democratic Action have joined as co-sponsors for some events.

The participating Iowa Chapters of Our Revolution released a joint statement:

“With the passage of Trumpcare in the House, we now take the fight to the Senate. We must protect The Affordable Care Act, a critically important step towards the goal of making healthcare available to all. We support the recent statement of Jeff Weaver, President of Our Revolution:

‘Our Revolution will continue to fight against Republican efforts to strip people of their healthcare and support efforts to build on the strength
of the Medicare program and create a Medicare for All system.’

That’s why 108 Democrats (and counting!) in Congress have signed on as co-sponsors of HR 676, The Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act. The
Iowa Chapters of Our Revolution support HR 676, and look forward to Senator Sanders introducing the Senate version of this bill.”
