Changes to Medicare have been a central issue in the debates. STAND UP for the only change that needs to be made: Improving and Expanding Medicare for All – implementing a universal healthcare system in the United States.

Join us, Physicians for a National Health Program-NY Metro and allies against cuts to our social safety net – Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

“When Paul Ryan was picked as Mitt Romney’s running mate back in August, Medicare was pushed to center stage as the main issue of the elections. Ryan is the architect of the plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program–a move that would end the popular and efficient public program as we know it and jeopardize the health of close to 50 million elderly and disabled Americans. He and other Republican leaders also want to block-grant Medicaid. While most Democrats oppose these proposals, they have their own plans to drastically cut these safety net programs if they enter into an anticipated ‘grand bargain’ on the deficit.”
