I never thought I’d live to be 72. The thought of it actually shocks me– and it’s a really good feeling. Look forward to it– especially if we have Medicare-for-All headed our way.
I’ve been getting a ton of well-wishes, especially on Facebook. Instead of sending a card or anything, can you consider contributing to any congressional candidate dedicated to passing Medicare-for-All?
Personally, during my fight with a really awful cancer a few years ago I would surely have died without Medicare.
You can find 33 Medicare-for-All candidates by clicking the thermometer on the right, both Senate candidates and House candidates. Even if you just want to give one dollar to one candidate… it would be a mitzvah.
I know we’re all thinking about the presidential race right now, but unless we get some good solid progressives into Congress, we’re not going to get the fundamental, transformative change we need.
Even if we elect a great president like Bernie or Elizabeth (or a Bernie-Elizabeth ticket), we’re going to need more members like Ro Khanna and Pramila Jayapal and Ted Lieu, AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Andy Levin and Jamie Raskin to pass the kind of progressive agenda the status quo establishment is going to fight ever step of the way to keep from being enacted.
Thanks for always doing what you can to make a better world. And hey, it’s my Birthday!
