Come to this month's Socialist Night School
Louisville DSA hosts a monthly Socialist Night School. This month, we will be learning about the commodification of healthcare, discussing how the theories of commodity fetishism and reification apply to the current for-profit healthcare model.

John Yarmuth, prioritize Medicare for all
If Yarmuth, as the Chair of the House Budget Committee prioritizes other healthcare reform, promotes watered down alternatives, or doesn’t use his position as chairman to champion Medicare for All, then he will be letting down his constituents and the country. The majority of Americans agree, we need Medicare for All, NOW! There is no doubt that we should reach out to thank our congressman for his support, but more importantly we should reach out for what the moment calls for, real action to forward the people's demands.
Let's make sure John Yarmuth will prioritize H.R. 1976, the Medicare for All bill.

Hello, My name is [name] & I live in [zip code]. You can reach me back at [leave your preferred contact info here]
I am a constituent, a [DSA Member, healthcare worker and/or union member here], and a supporter of Medicare for All.
I want to first thank Mr. Yarmuth for signing on to the Medicare for All Act, HR 1976. Secondly, I’d like to know if Mr. Yarmuth, the house budget chairman, and a member of the Medicare for All Caucus, will prioritize the passage of H.R. 1976 over any other major healthcare bills? The ACA is no good, the public option is more of the same and your voters know that nothing but Medicare for All will do! I look forward to hearing about Mr. Yarmuth’s move to mark-up this important legislation. Thank you.
