This is the first in a series of talking points designed for progressive candidates for office. It focuses on health care.

There is a growing national movement for universal, publicly financed health care that guarantees health care for all.

This tool offers language for talking about health care. The first two pages provide overall framing of the issues, and the following pages provide more detailed talking points and supporting evidence.
