The U.S. has the highest per-capita spending for healthcare in the world, and some of the worst health outcomes. Health insurance companies profit from denying people care. DSA has been organizing and leading a campaign for Medicare for All that is showing how the left can articulate and agitate for a universal demand that will also deal a large blow to capital. What does the fight for Medicare for All look like on the left? How can we use the campaign to build toward more expansive demands?
