Tell President Biden: Include Medicare Expansion in the American Families Plan

Medicare is one of the most successful and popular federal programs in our nation’s history. Now, 55 years after it was signed into law, we must expand and improve this program so that millions of older Americans can receive the health care they need, including eyeglasses, hearing aids, and dental care.

Including Medicare expansions and improvements in the American Families Plan would put our country on a path towards making Medicare for All a reality while also immediately helping the twenty-seven percent of adults age 50 to 64 who are not confident that they can afford health insurance over the next year, the seventy percent of senior citizens have no dental insurance and the half of all senior citizens that survive on less than $2,200 a month.

Add your name right now to join DFA, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Ed Markey in calling on President Biden to include Medicare expansion in the American Families Plan.
