Tell Senator Dick Durbin: Stand up for our healthcare, and demand national Improved Medicare for All!

Deaths per year due to a lack of health insurance:
– 50,000 people under the Republican healthcare bills
– 29,000 under the Affordable Care Act,
– Zero under HR 676 Expanded and Improved Medicare for All.

We know Medicare for All is the only way to provide quality, affordable coverage to everyone. Medicare and Medicaid were signed into law on July 30, 1965. It’s time to finish the job! Improve Medicare and expand it to all! Everybody in, nobody out!

We need our elected leadership, including Senator Durbin, to stand up for our health and our lives. Let’s show this impact by ‘dying’ outside of his Chicago and Springfield offices.

*Please wear black if you can.
