Welcome to CareDemocracy

Mission Statement

CareDemocracy is an educational vehicle and political advocacy organization.
CareDemocracy is an advocacy organization for high quality healthcare.
CareDemocracy seeks to make all forms of high quality health care available at low cost for all members of society

This includes dental and mental health care, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and alternative health care methods. Through diverse media, CareDemocracy is uniting patients, health professionals, all other care givers, political leaders and the public at large in a singular effort to fundamentally improve the health care delivery system in the United States. CareDemocracy believes that in a developed society health care is a right and not a privilege.
CareDemocracy believes that a pollution free environment is the keystone of good healthcare. Therefore, we are advocates for environmental justice.
CareDemocracy believes that access to preventative medicine and healthcare education are fundamental elements of a truly effective healthcare system.
CareDemocracy believes that the freedom to choose providers and treatment modalities, including traditional and alternative methods, is a personal right.



The Medicare for All Act of 2017
Senate Bill 1804

We support The Medicare for All Act of 2017, Senate Bill 1804, which will guarantee health care to every American by expanding and improving Medicare. We also support the Physicians National Health Program which will create the same kind of universal healthcare system now operating successfully in many developed nations around the world. Please check out the video and audio messages and websites provided on these pages to learn more about this growing movement to provide a good healthcare delivery system for Americans.
