The webpages of the candidates were reviewed looking for statements of support for “Medicare for All” or “Single-Payer Health Care” or “HR 676”. Additionally, we sent questionnaires to each candidate listed. In districts where candidates responded, we show a scorecard. A green check indicates the candidate checked that box on the questionnaire. A red “X” indicates the candidate did not return the questionnaire or did not check that box.

Mike Doyle – Incumbent (D) – Rep. Doyle did not return the Questionnaire. He is officially a co-sponsor of HR 676 and mentions his support for Medicare for All on his official website but does not mention it on his campaign website. He has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ($180,000 in 2015-16). The DCCC is an organization that collects money from health industry groups and finances campaigns of candidates who are opposed to Medicare for All. He has been asked to stop financing this organization and, instead, give his political money directly to candidates who publicly support Medicare for All. Already in 2017-18 he has paid $25,000 to the DCCC.
