Michigan March for Medicare for All!

Date: 
Mon, Jul 24, 2017 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

City:

We know with the GOP proposed healthcare bill, 22 million people would loose their health coverage in the next decade, and this means an earlier death for many. With over 30% of our current health costs going to billing and administrative costs, we know we can do more for the 28 million who are currently uninsured. Also, our country shamefully has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the "developed" nations. I believe we can push our government to better represent and advocate for the majority of people.
