Mike Doyle (D)- incumbent – No statement of support for Medicare for All.  Rep. Doyle is officially a co-sponsor of HR 676.  Medicare for All advocates have asked him to post his support for HR 676 on his official and campaign websites but, thus far, he has refused to do so.  He contributes hundreds of thousands of dollars every election to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  This 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 he has paid $25,000 to the DCCC.

Janis C. Brooks  (D) – No statement of support for Medicare for All.
