WASHINGTON, D.C.–People’s Action released the following statement from Health Care for All Director Aija Nemer-Aanerud on Sen. Sanders’ hearing and the reintroduction of Medicare for All:

“Everyone should get the care they need, when they need it, with no out of pocket costs. Instead, predatory insurance CEOs have created a nightmare in which people are forced to forgo medications, beg for help on fundraising websites, and stay sick and rack up more medical debts. That’s wrong.

“We’re proud that Sen. Sanders held a historic hearing on Medicare for All and reintroduced this landmark legislation. A few greedy corporate insurance executives won’t stop us from winning the collective care we need to thrive.”
