Medicare’s passage in 1965 was a milestone in the struggle to provide affordable healthcare to seniors, providing longer, healthier lives and basic health security for millions, while keeping administrative costs at just 3%.
Yet, many in Congress want to privatize Medicare (along with Social Security and Medicaid), to benefit the for-profit health insurance industry at the expense of millions of Americans. Just say NO! Extending Medicare for all would save more than enough to eliminate all cost sharing such as copays and deductibles, guarantee comprehensive coverage for all, and be there for future generations.
Tell Congress and the President, “Medicare is the Solution. Not the Problem.”
