Now is the time for Medicare for All

Democrats should introduce a fully fleshed-out “Medicare for All” bill, announce the intent to introduce it four weeks in advance, and talk it up at town halls, on traditional media and social media.  The DNC should engage activist groups to “beat the streets” for grassroots support.  Democrats should promote it as a replacement for Obamacare.  If it is blocked by the GOP, use all of the previously mentioned tools for disseminating information to spotlight their failure to produce anything that is actually better than the ACA and isn’t just a tool to give the very wealthiest a huge tax break.  It is not enough to just attack the obscene legislation the GOP is trying to push through Congress, but the Democratic Party must show that it has the ability and the drive to work for the people to “. . . promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity . . . “.  The time to act is now.
