URGENT: DSA and Partners Organizing Health Care Sit-Ins 7/6


Senate Republicans want to take away health insurance from 22 million people and cut Medicaid by $772 billion over the next decade, eliminating or diminishing health services for up to thirty-four million children, eleven million disabled people, and seven million seniors, many of whom live in nursing homes. Why? To provide a 541 billion dollar tax break to the wealthy.

As democratic socialists, we must resist this and stand up for better – single payer. That’s why we’re partnering with Democracy Spring, Our Revolution, #AllOfUs, The People’s Consortium, and others to organize rapid-response nonviolent sit-ins across the country Thursday, July 6th. We demand that Republican Senators vote NO on the so-called Better Care Reconciliation Act before it comes to the floor.

Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. As democratic socialists, we understand that. Our struggles are connected – we must all fight together. And even as we recognize the serious flaws of Obamacare and fight for the real solution – single-payer Medicare for All – we must do everything we can now to defend the tens of millions who will suffer if the GOP healthcare plan passes.

DSA and our partners are sending a message to the Trump administration and the Republican Party that we will not stand by while our very health, our very lives, are put in jeopardy. Updates will be added as needed.

At this training, we'll be running through the basics of how to set up a Medicare for All canvassing campaign in your chapter. Canvassing is a foundational political skill, and one that will help build DSA's political capacity to fight for socialism now and going forward. This training will include a "Rap Training," where we'll be going over in a bit more detail the Medicare for all door-knocking rap so as to get people comfortable with talking about the need for single-payer healthcare.
