Phoenix Republican Congressional Candidate Richard Grayson Demands Medicare-for-All Single-Payer Universal Health Care; Endorsed by Rapper DMX
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 20 - Standing outside Scottsdale's Mayo Clinic this morning, Arizona Fourth Congressional District Republican candidate Richard Grayson announced his support of Medicare for every American. Grayson endorsed H.R. 676, the United States National Health Insurance Act, which would provide universal single-payer non-profit health care.
The candidate noted that Rep. Ed Pastor, the Democrat who currently holds the 4th C.D. seat, is one of 90 co-sponsors of that legislation.
"As a Republican," Grayson said, "I wholeheartedly support ending the current farkakteh system of health care in favor of expanding to everyone the Medicare system that has worked so well in protecting America's elderly since 1965."
In a related development, Grayson announced that his campaign had been endorsed by the rapper DMX.
