Medicare is, by far, Americans’ favorite payer for health care. But it’s not perfect. Both House and Senate Medicare for All bills IMPROVE on Medicare as well as extending it to all. Here’s how.

The Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care condemns the murder of George Floyd as an act of the pervasive racism that has led to the deaths of black, indigenous, people of color through violence, poverty, and unabated discrimination in all areas of life, including health care.
