Sisters and Brothers –
When Bernie Sanders started talking about a Medicare for All, single-payer health care system, they called him a radical. They said it was a fringe idea.
But then our 2016 campaign happened, and because of you health care as a right is now an idea supported by a majority of the American people.
So today, the calls from our opponents have changed. They don’t say we’re radical anymore. Today they say things like “slow down,” or that incremental change is the best we can do. You’ll mostly hear those calls coming from inside of D.C. think tanks, or from insurance company lobbyists and people with excellent health care.
So we want to get a sense from you on how big of a deal Medicare for All would be for our country, or whether we should “slow down.”
Take our first official Medicare for All survey. We’ll review the results and get them to Bernie this week. So we’re hoping to hear from you today.
Here’s the first question of the survey:
Rich or poor, we are all born, we all get sick, we all have accidents, we all need health care at the end of our lives, and we all die.
And the function of a sane health care system in this country should be to keep all of our people well in a cost effective way, not to make health industry CEOs richer or to drive up the stock prices on Wall Street.
Take our survey – tell us how important it is for the United States to guarantee health care as a right for every man, woman, and child.
Thanks for sounding off,

We hope you’ll stay, because emails are such an important part of how we organize and how we raise money. In fact, there is no single greater source for our campaign’s fundraising than emails like this one. And that’s important, because no one person, not even Bernie Sanders, can take on Trump and the billionaire class alone.
We have an official FEC fundraising deadline coming up and we’re trying to report as many individual donations as we possibly can. Make a contribution today before the FEC deadline comes to a close.
