This is the page where we will feature videos of activists birddogging Congressional candidates, asking them to support Medicare for All when they are elected! Elections are one of the best opportunities residents have to force candidates to commit to doing the right thing. When we are getting close to November 6, we will let everyone vote on the best and worst candidate responses listed on this page!
