Medicare For All
In order to have Medicare-For-All pass through the senate, a bill has to be introduced in either chamber of Congress by a senator or representative who sponsors it. Once a bill is introduced, it is assigned to a committee whose members will research, discuss, and make changes to the bill. The bill is then put before that chamber to be voted on. With that being said, for a progressive program of government-provided healthcare to make it into law, survive, and thrive, it must be popular. The first task for democrats is deciding how to market their vision of government provided, universal healthcare.
Trump and the Republicans are hoping to inflict perhaps irreparable harm to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and already have done much damage. And even when the law was working at its best, it left over 28 million people without insurance. One of the ACA's key failings is that, despite its name, it does far too little to make coverage truly affordable for many. The ACA is the comprehensive healthcare reform signed into law by President Barack Obama in March 2010. 
How Will We Pay For Medicare For All?
Medicare For All would be funded by the federal government, using money that otherwise would go to medicare, medicaid, and other federal programs that pay for health services. We can eliminate employer-sponsored health insurance. Employers-paid premiums for health insurance are exempt from federal income and payroll taxes. By eliminating employer-sponsored health insurance. This will lower payroll taxes and have the federal programs pay for Medicare For All. This was Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act, also known as Medicare for All or United States National Health Care Act. This was a bill first introduced in the United States House of Representatives by former Representative John Conyers (D-MI) in 2003, with 25 cosponsors. Hillary Clinton was also for Medicare For All and so was former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. This is the way forward. Medicare for All is not only a choice but it is also a humans right to be able to go to a Doctors Office when you are sick or hospital when a $10,000 dollar surgery is necessary.
What Does This Mean For Existing Healthcare Programs?
Private insurers typically pay more for physician services than Medicare, the federal health insurance program for the elderly, according to the Congressional Budget Office. If Medicare for All was implemented, doctors would get paid government rates for all their patients. As my proposal of Universal Basic Income this will not eliminate other healthcare providers or private insurance. This is simply your choice to get on Universal Healthcare also known as Medicare for All. 
My proposal
  • Author a discharge petition to force a vote on Medicare for All.
  • Include provisions in year-end spending bills that create a presidential commission charged with crafting a Medicare for All program.
  • Remove the Medicare for All opponent who chairs the key committee.
  • employer-sponsored insurance would be eliminated.
Author a Discharge Petition To Vote
Discharge petition is designed to let rank-and-file members to force a floor to vote on an issue. Creating a discharge petition on Medicare for All would help clarify who actually supports the program and who is merely cosponsoring Medicare for All legislation as a performative gesture. A gesture we can all come to agree on. A gesture to cosponsoring Medicare for All legislation. Discharge Petition to Vote will allow the people compared to the members of chambers on a voting basis. We can all come to an agreement that not only will Medicare for All save lives but is also a humans right.
In some sense, that proclivity is understandable — our short-attention-span social media culture disproportionately rewards spectacles rather than the unglamorous wielding of power. For instance, it is easier to do YouTube rants and get retweets about a high-profile floor vote than it is to get everyone excited about the much harder organizing work of getting esoteric HHS waivers or removing a relatively obscure committee chairman who is blocking progress.
Include Provisions Crafting a Medicare for All Program
All Progressives can flip the script and create a commission charged with evaluating other countries' Universal health care systems and coming up with proposals to guarantee health care to all Americans. Granted, this is what Congress exists to do, but forcing a Democratic administration to come up with proposals could also advance the cause by pushing the executive branch to take the whole entire concept seriously.
Medicare for All typically refers to a single-payer health care program in which all Americans are covered by a more generous version of Medicare. Under a single-payer bill sponsored by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Medicare for All would cover essential treatment with no premiums or deductibles. It would also expand the categories of benefits under the current Medicare system to include areas such as dental and vision coverage, as well as long-term care. Proponents of a single-payer Medicare for All argue that health care is a right and that enrolling all Americans under one plan is the best way to ensure universal coverage, especially for economically vulnerable populations.
Removing The Medicare for All Opponent
The current chairman of the Ways and Means Committee — which is one of the key panels overseeing Medicare for All proposals. is Representative Richard Neal, who has played a singularly destructive role on behalf of his health care industry and Wall Street donors. He opposes Medicare for All, and recently, he has tried to water down surprise billing legislation in the middle of the pandemic.
For the people, we need remove Richard Neal or demote him. Together we can eliminate his proposals and remove him from office in order to get the things done that the American People needs.
Employer-sponsored Insurance Would be Eliminated
We need to eliminate employer-sponsored insurance because it does not cover all people. In fact, if you work full-time it can cut your hours until you no longer qualify on their sponsored insurance programs. If you are working part-time, you are not qualified at all. By removing the existing Employer-sponsored insurance and replacing it with Universal Medicare for All. This will be for all people and guaranteed insurance coverage with no cost to you. This is why we need to eliminate employer sponsored insurance. Yanking your insurance away, with or without telling you, violates the law. We need to protect our medicare and provide a Universal Health Care for All.
