Calls for Action

A few days ago we launched a petition to pressure Congress to support Medicare for All legislation currently before them. Guess what? It’s working. HR676 has a surge of new cosponsors thanks to you.


We’re writing, first, to say THANK YOU for adding your voice to the more than 56K who’ve already signed. We also want to give you an update on what you helped us accomplish the last few days, and what we need you to do next.


We need to keep pushing the petition to reach 100K signatures. Click here to share the latest update on Facebook.


Our petition garnered coverage from Vox, HuffPo, and several other outlets. And all your traffic on social media definitely caught the attention of some members of Congress.


Because of you, TEN new House Dems joined their 72 colleagues in support of Conyers’ bill HR676 to expand Medicare coverage to all!. Some of their names aren’t reflected on the official site yet, but we have confirmed the following have signed on as co-sponsors since Monday:


Donald Payne Jr. (NJ-10)

Nydia Velazquez (NY-07)

Frederica Wilson (FL-24)

Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02)

Peter DeFazio (OR-04)

Kathy Castor (FL-14)

David Price (NC-04)

Gene Greene (TX-29)

Jimmy Panetta (CA-20)

David Cicilline (RI-01)


While we’re up to 82 cosponsors, unfortunately, there are still 111 House Democrats who haven’t publicly committed to Conyers’ bill. Click the image below to view full size.




Is your representative in the list? Share the petition and let them know we will primary Democrats who won’t fight for universal healthcare.


Republicans are signaling they’re ready to take another vote on Trumpcare as early as next week. House Dems need to fight for health care as a human right or know that we are coming for their seat in 2018.


You’ve already done a lot by adding your voice to the petition. Now we’re calling on you to do two things:


Forward this email to 5 people and ask them to sign the petition as well. We will hand deliver the signatures to Congress and we want a BIG number to send a BIG message.


If your representative still hasn’t supported HR676, call them and ask them to get on board. You can find their number quickly by searching this website with your zip code. Here’s what you say:

“I’m a constituent and I’m calling to ask the Congressman / Congresswoman’s support for HR676, Rep. John Conyers’ bill for Medicare for All. More than 80% of Democratic voters support a Medicare-for-All system, and 41% of Republican voters do, too. The GOP wants to gut health care. I believe health care is a human right and I want my representative to fight for universal coverage.”


Thank you for helping us move Congress to recognize healthcare as a human right. Our work is just getting started. Let’s keep the heat on Congressional Democrats to take a stand and fight for Medicare for All!


Yours for the revolution,

The Justice Democrats

No one is surprised that the GOP plan for replacing Obamacare —called the American Health Care Act— is terrible. Of course it is tax cuts for the wealthy because — Republicans.

Call Representative David Schweikert at (202) 225-2190. and demand he reject the American Health Care Act.


Republican governors can be critical in preventing repeal of the ACA.  Call Gov. Ducey today and tell him not to negotiate away Medicaid.
