Support Medicare for All

Medicare for All would guarantee comprehensive health benefits, without copays or deductibles, to every resident in the country of all ages. Also, professors at UCLA and University of California, San Francisco, found that Medicare for All would reduce health expenditures while providing high-quality insurance to all U.S. residents.

Unsurprisingly, powerful healthcare corporations are determined to block it by spending massive amounts of money buying politicians to protect their bottom lines over the health of patients.

I recently discovered that CVS was one of these influential corporations bankrolling our U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar, as reported by Open Secrets. In fact, the health-care industry is one of Rep. Aguilar’s top donors.

CVS is directly profiting off of the pain, suffering and death of patients, while using those same profits to purchase political influence in an attempt to defend a wasteful system that is failing tens of millions of people.

It’s time for CVS to immediately cut ties with Aguilar, as well as other corporate interests fighting against Medicare for All.
