Today, in New Haven, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, Medicare for All CT and Colleges Organizing for Medical Access of Connecticut (COMA-CT) are holding a companion event to the national Millions Marching for Medicare for All. There will be a demonstration outside of Rep. Rosa DeLauro’s office in New Haven (59 Elm St., between Church and Orange) to encourage her and the rest of the CT House Delegation to cosponsor H.R. 676, Rep. John Conyers’ (D-MI) Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. The majority of House Democrats have signed the bill; DeLauro is one of a few holdouts left in the Progressive Caucus.
The Left is increasingly realizing that the Affordable Care Act is not enough, that a public-private solution means large ongoing increases in health exchange insurance rates and millions without insurance or sufficient access to health care.
You can also sign a petition asking CT’s House Delegation to support the Medicare for All Act.
