We need to capitalize on the growing momentum for Medicare for All, and with your help, here's how we are going to do that. Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal is introducing a new bill this session of Congress, and we need to get new Congresspeople to sign on, as well as two of our old holdouts, Pallone and Pascrell. Immediate action is to call Frank Pallone CD 6, at (202) 225-4671, or (732) 571-1140 and Bill Pascrell, CD9, at (202) 225-5751, or (973) 523-5152.  Ask them to sign on to the New Medicare for All bill (no number yet) and join the Medicare for All caucus. That is also what we are asking our new Congresspeople to do.
