PHILADELPHIA – The Green Party of Pennsylvania stands with those who are demanding the Democratic Progressive Caucus in the US House of Representatives withhold their votes for Speakership (Nancy Pelosi) to force a vote on the floor for Medicare for All. This would expose the members of the Democratic Party who have refused to sign on for Universal Healthcare during a global pandemic. It also reveals that representatives who have campaigned on Medicare for All are more concerned with their personal careers, party loyalty, and upholding the obsolescent duopoly rather than fulfilling a promise they made to voters in their district. This is a unique moment because there is a short window in which progressives in Congress can have leverage to bring the bill to the floor for the first time and the need for Medicare for All is greater than ever.Read more
After months of devastating delays, the paltry new COVID relief package is a slap in the face of suffering Americans.
$600 won't get many families through the month, much less the winter. We support the call for $2000 stimulus checks, as a start.
Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats are shying away from promoting Medicare-For-All.
We. Will. Not. Stand. For. This.
Tell your Congressional Representative:
- We demand bold, decisive COVID relief to kick off the desperately-needed Green New Deal. Starting with $2000 stimulus checks.
- We demand unabashed support for Medicare-For-All, including floor votes, without delay. #ForceTheVote!
- Stop spending money on tax cuts and subsidies for billionaires and corporations, stop dumping money into our bloated war machine. Invest in the health, safety and future of our communities!
