"Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) is founding a political action committee to contribute money to congressional candidates who support single-payer health care, commonly known as Medicare for all.
The PAC’s website, where donors can contribute online, went live Wednesday morning at passmedicareforall.org.
“The goal is really to lift up and support candidates who are excited about and supporting the idea of Medicare for all,” Jayapal, a first-term former activist, told HuffPost in an interview. “It’s really that simple.”
Medicare for all, which would provide health insurance to all Americans through one federal program, was considered a left-wing pipe dream as recently as three years ago.
The idea has gained traction since the 2016 presidential run of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). It now has the support of more than one-third of the Senate Democratic Caucus; a majority of House Democrats; and former President Barack Obama. Jayapal is a founding co-chair of the Medicare for All Caucus, a bloc of House Democrats who support the proposal and seek to leverage their collective power to advance it."
