Medicare for All Town Hall Panelist Speeches in Houston, TX (VIDEO)

The Medicare For All Town Hall sponsored by Houston Area Progressives, Democratic Socialists of America — Houston, and Our Revolution was a resounding success.

Featured Panelists:

Dr. Stephen Chao — Health Care for All Texas
 Tim Faust — Chapo Trap House
 Alex Lawson — Social Security Works
 Judith Lerma — National Nurses United

We want our representatives to support Medicare for ALL, so we hosted a Town Hall on July 8th, the same day events will be going on across the country to DEMAND Independence from Privatized Healthcare!

We believe that Healthcare is a human right, and should be accessible and obtainable by all, regardless of wealth.

Most Americans support Healthcare for All, and we believe our representatives should support H.R.676 — Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act. We invited all members of the US House of Representatives in Harris County to attend our Town Hall event, and we are encouraging local candidates for these seats to attend as well.

Before the Town Hall, we hosted a community Health Fair inviting local clinics and Healthcare advocacy organizations to participate. We had health screenings and information about local resources available, as well as local organizations that you can get involved with to help fight for healthcare for all, and will be doing a screening of the documentary Fix It during the lunch break.

Following are the speeches given by the four panelists.

Alex Lawson — Social Security Works

Dr. Stephen Chao — Health Care for All Texas

Tim Faust — Chapo Trap House

Judith Lerma — National Nurses United
