Background: We’ve known for years that the U.S. health care system is fundamentally broken, but the COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted and exacerbated every flaw. As we continue to deal with the fallout of this pandemic, and as thousands of people work across the country to contain its spread, it’s evident that everyone needs affordable, accessible health care and prescription drugs. We’re still fighting to protect the Affordable Care Act and to combat skyrocketing prescription drug prices. These remote events will elevate the stories and experiences of Americans affected by the spread of the coronavirus — the progressive movement is fighting for quality, affordable health care during a pandemic.

#TakeAction 2 – Demand emergency medical supplies
Call our MoCs, demand they keep the pressure on the Administration to increase production and distribution of medical supplies. Our area hospitals are having to scrounge for and reuse their protective gear; they are warning of impending shortages of ventilators and the real possibility of having to triage critically ill patients. Recently the president invoked the Defense Production Act, yet he has not given specific instructions on the production of medical supplies and equipment.
