In the United States of America people die because they cannot afford medical care. Many of us are acutely aware of this; 34 million of us have known someone who died because they could not afford medical care. The Medicare for All act would end this by providing free at point of use national healthcare system that provides comprehensive healthcare for all of us.
I want to be clear about one common misconception: “defund the police” does not mean “abolish the police.” A more correct way to convey this message would be to say, “reallocate police funding from military grade weapons and aggressive combatant training to preventative measures that make communities safer and healthier.” Unfortunately, that phrase lacks zing and hardly fits on a bumper sticker.
The time has passed to compromise on $15 an hour as a living wage. A $15 hourly wage would keep many people in poverty. We need a $22 an hour mandatory minimum wage. The Center for Economic Policy and Research acknowledges that if the minimum wage had continued to move with average productivity after 1968, it would have reached $21.72 per hour in 2012! We needed $22 an hour to survive 8 years ago!
