Polis Cosponsors Medicare for All Legislation in the House of Representatives
Long before the concept had any widespread support among Democratic politicians, Jared Polis was making the case to voters that a single-payer plan was the best way to ensure access to quality, affordable health care for all Americans.
Over the weekend, Polis shared a campaign ad from his first run for Congress in 2008 in which he campaigned proudly on his support for a federal single-payer health care system.
In Congress, Jared is a cosponsor of H.R. 676, the federal Medicare for All bill led in the House by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) recently introduced similar legislation in the U.S. Senate.
As governor, Jared will continue his advocacy for federal single-payer health care and pursue innovative solutions at both the state and federal levels to lower costs, expand coverage, and improve the quality of health care for all Coloradans.
