House Reintroduces Medicare-For-All Bill



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Paul Song about the latest House of Representatives Medicare-For-All bill.

The advocacy group Public Citizen has just published a whitepaper on the impact of the pandemic on a nation that has no national health system. According to its authors, “hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of infections would like have been prevented,” had the U.S. enjoyed a Medicare-for-All system.

Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal of Washington has just reintroduced her Medicare-for-All bill that would expand the program currently enjoyed by those 65 years of age and older, to all Americans.

Paul Song, a board-certified radiation oncologist. He is co-chair of the Campaign for a Healthy California and is on the board of Physicians for a National Health Program. Paul is also the Healthcare Correspondent for Rising Up With Sonali.
