Even if the ACA remains intact under Trump's Republican Party, the Congressional Budget Office predicts that 28 million Americans will remain uninsured, a disproportionate number of whom are people of color. And millions more will continue to struggle with sky-high deductibles and co-pays that they can't afford.
Some Democrats claim that a single-payer system is politically impossible. But recent polls show that the fight over Trumpcare has actually increased support for government taking a more active role in the health care system.
Embracing universal coverage wouldn't just be the right thing for Democrats to do -- it would be a smart way to win new voters and build the majority we need to defeat Donald Trump, all while remaining true to our values.
It's time to make sure all Americans have truly affordable access to the health care services they need and deserve -- by implementing a Medicare for All, single-payer health care system.
Sign DFA's petition calling on Democrats to fight for Medicare for All now.
