MEDICARE FOR ALL: What is it? Why do we need it? How do we get it? Join an esteemed panel of experts and find the answers to all your questions.

The 2018 midterm campaigns launched the term Medicare for All (M4A) into the mainstream political dialog. Voters started showing up at local candidate town halls and asking politicians for their positions on it. Some 70% of Americans now favor it, according to a Reuters Aug. 2018 survey.

But what is “it”? What exactly does Medicare for All entail? Does it differ from single payer? Is it better than the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare)? Is it the same plan that Canada has? England? France? Germany? Norway? How do we pay for it?

Bring your questions and concerns on Sunday, Feb. 10.. “We are super proud and excited to present such a stellar panel of experts on the subject,” says Matt Skeete of Our Revolution/ Essex, and one of the lead organizers of the event, “and a program which will offer next steps to making quality healthcare available to everyone.”

Speakers include: Lloyd Alterman M.D.; Mark Dudzic (National Campaign for Labor for Single Payer); Safiyyah Muhammad (community member and Medicare for All activist)

Wendell Potter (New York Times bestselling author and former health insurance industry executive)

Moderator, Saily Avelenda, Esq. (Executive Director of NJ 11th for Change)

Sponsored by Our Revolution, NJ Working Families Alliance and National Nurses United
