The Case for Medicare for All

On February 4, 2019 Public Citizen published a report in support of Medicare-for-All.  This 69-page document called The Case for Medicare for All summarizes how a Medicare-for-All healthcare system would guarantee high quality healthcare to all U.S. citizens; even to those in need of chronic care or who might require preventative care.  The Political Economy Research Institute published its report called Economic Analysis of Medicare for All in November, 2018.

This reports details how a Medicare-for-All system would be more efficient and provide more access to what is currently in place today.   Public Citizen also created a short video illustrating the myths surrounding Medicare-for-All.
