Support for wellness in mind, body, spirit~Cathy Blake – Arvada, CO
I have been studying healthcare since age 21 when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Imagine not having to be limited by networks to get my power wheelchair fixed~Steven Field

A society in which economic security is taken for granted and you don’t have to worry that if you get sick you will be taken care of and not have your life destroyed at the very least~Dave Anderson Boulder, Colo
IMAGINE Universal Health Care, with optimal health and wellness care for you, and all individuals, families and communities! IMAGINE!~Pat DeWald from Evergreen, Colorado
I imagine I will feel as the journalist and author Anand Giridharadas described when he received health care in London. Receiving care in the US will feel like being hugged by 331 million people~Elaine Branjord, Fort Collins, CO

Health Care allowing young folks to thrive in their gender identity, race, and medical conditions~Ezra (Young Peoples Campaign UHC)

The US will finally join the rest of the civilized world and this will make us a better country and a better member of the world~Jim Potter and Nancy Reed, Cotopaxi, CO.
I imagine the freedom of lifestyle that occurs when healthcare comes with being an American resident. The humanity of communities increase and inequities begin to crumble~Kristine Hembre
But how can we ever afford this??? (just kidding)~Steven Field
If we pay a reasonable tax according to our means to fund IM4A, and if we are having a good year medically and are not technically getting back every tax dollar, we are helping fund the whole system. I think this is very American and very patriotic~Geoff Dolman
Don’t forget that instead of paying premiums to a corporation, you’d be paying them to the government (which doesn’t have to make a profit). ~Brandon ‘Kid’ Barrett, CO
I imagine that health care professionals will be able to use their education, training and experience to help people without the interference of non-health care professionals who care more about profits than people.

America is ready-LET’S MAKE THE BREAK~Kristine Hembre

No saviour from on high delivers No faith have we in prince or peer Our own right hand the chains must shiver Chains of hatred, greed and fear E’er the thieves will out with their booty And give to all a happier lot. Each at the forge must do their duty And we’ll strike while the iron is hot~David Burns
Young People’s Campaign for Universal Health Care is an organization advocating for Medicare and Medicaid while ultimately seeking a Universal Health Care system. The Campaign is primarily focused on bridging racial disparity in health care, improving health for young people, and providing coverage for mental health and gender-affirming surgeries. We do this through legislative actions, (twitter storms, lobbying, etc.) education campaigns and awareness, and art and music.
