We are a coalition of American mayors who believe that health care is a human right. 30 million Americans don’t have access to health care and millions more are going broke or bankrupt because they can’t afford their health care plans.
We support a Medicare for All, single payer system, that would cover every American with healthcare.
And coverage would include vision, dental, hearing, prescription drugs, mental health care, and more.
The COVID-19 crisis has made health disparities even worse.
Communities of color and low-income families in particular are struggling with health care and the enormous burdens of income inequality. As mayors of America’s cities, we see the impacts of the lack of health care access every single day.
We hope that in 2021 and beyond, we will have an opportunity with a new Congress and President to expand health care and reform our system.
Our coalition has 3 goals:
