A LITTLE ABOUT KED and THE NATIONAL NURSES UNITED FOR ALL:
Nurses have been at the helm of this fight for Medicare for All for decades and there is good reason why. Nurses bear witnesses to the dire consequences on their patients every day. They see patients rationing their prescriptions or putting off important medical procedures because of cost. They see patients dealing with the devastating burden of choosing between their rent or groceries and their healthcare. Nurses are committed to this fight because they know firsthand that Medicare for All will bring many of their patients enormous relief. For some of their patients, the passage of Medicare for All will be the difference between life and death.
