Today is the day! We're launching our #MedicareForAll Caucus in the House. Health care cannot be a luxury that's only available for the wealthy and well-connected—it is a human right.

Join the #M4ACaucus LIVE now:… Just days before the 53rd anniversary of @MedicareGov, I'm proud to launch our #MedicareForAll Caucus as a founding co-chair.

We're united today because we know health care must be affordable and accessible to ALL people in the U.S.

Medicare for All is the way forward.
