Whereas: Barriers to quality medical care infringe on the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and access to health care is a fundamental human right, and;
Whereas a bill has been introduced in Congress, HR 676, aka The Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, that will provide all medically necessary care, including dental and prescription drugs, to everyone in the country from birth to death. There will be no co-pays nor deductibles so that inability to pay will be removed as an impediment to care.
Whereas with HR 676 each person will choose their own physicians, hospitals, and other providers.
Therefore be it resolved that the City of _______________ wholeheartedly endorses HR 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act; and
Be it further resolved that we call on our representative in Congress, Representative __________________, to formally co-sponsor HR 676 so that the people of our city, our state, and our nation can move forward toward the excellent health care we deserve.
