Support Health Care for All come out this Saturday to the Inner City Blues Festival published on

The Democratic Parties top legislative action item is health care. Health care is a human right, we demand our legislatures adopt an equitable, high-quality, comprehensive, universal, publicly-funded healthcare system including general, preventative, and emergency care, plus vision, dental, hearing, prescription drugs, long-term care, substance abuse, hospice care, and mental health services. Do you want to make this vision a reality?
