Why Single-payer?

The movement for Medicare-for-All health care is hitting a milestone with the Sept. 13, 2017, introduction in the U.S. Senate of legislation to create a single-payer system.

A single-payer, Medicare-for-All system would expand health care coverage to every American. The legislation comes after a summer of marches, rallies and other actions.
