    Stanton Center in Annapolis, MD

    Medicare 4 All Town Hall in Annapolis

    The American healthcare system is not working.
    We pay more for healthcare than any other country yet millions of Americans still don’t have health insurance or are underinsured.
    While healthcare industry profits are higher than ever, medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy in the United States.

    The Affordable Care Act, while a step in the right direction - has not controlled skyrocketing costs of healthcare. The solution is Medicare-for-all, a single-payer program that guarantees quality healthcare to all people as a right, not a privilege.

    Come learn about Medicare For All, and how the United States can join every other developed country in the world for a healthier citizenry!

     

    Speakers include: 

    State Senator Jill Carter

    Mark Dudzic Labor Campaign for Single Payer

    Alex Lawson Social Security Works

    Sanjeev Sriram, MD  "Dr. America"

    Kathleen Doyle, RN Labor and Delivery Nurse
