  • Explanation. The above partial list is a set of examples of organizations which are endorsers / supporters, along with the number of members of those organization. None of the numbers is meant to indicate that every individual member of every organization is a single-payer supporter.
    • An organization’s leaders often decide to endorse H.R. 676 on behalf of their members. In some cases a key national group of the organization has established a resolution(s) which strongly encourages all members of the organization to strongly / vigorously support H.R. 676.
    • For an individual member to support what their organization endorses and supports, it is necessary for that member to be informed about Improved Medicare for All. Then the individual person can knowledgeably decide if their opinion agrees with the opinion of their organization’s leaders or committee who also learned about single-payer.

AFL-CIO means “The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations”
