These are challenging but exciting times! With a narrow majority in the Senate some major policies are rising to the top of America's agenda. On March 17th, Rep. Debbie Dingell and Rep. Pramila Jayapal introduced the Medicare for All Act of 2021. Marjorie Mitchell, a long time health policy expert and Executive Director of MichUHCAN, has agreed to be our April 17th speaker to help us learn more about this proposal and to discuss strategies for its adoption.
P.S. The National Council of Gray Panthers Networks is giving Rep. Pramila Jayapal, (Washington state) Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, a "Prowling and Growling" award this month for her outstanding progressive leadership in Congress.
