HR 676, Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Gets 100 CoSponsors in Congress!

April 21, 2017

A record number of cosponsors of HR 676, the national single payer legislation, now numbers 100.  All are Democrats.  We would love to have one or two Republicans.  Interestingly, in polling data, almost 40% of Republicans now support single payer and over 80% of Democrats.  As Speaker Paul Ryan is about to reintroduce the American Health Care Act again, there are rumors that preexisting conditions can now be rated and premiums can be raised as much as tens of thousands of dollars.  Trump who promised to give us a better plan is likely to give us something far worse.  In order to get it under the 100 day “deadline”, Republicans may pass the bill without scoring from the Congressional Budget Office.  A huge mistake and an insult to the American people.  No score, no bill.
