Lady came up to me, with a registration form for registering in my state to vote. Under party affiliation, I wrote "Democratic Socialist", and she was ecstatic "I'm a Democratic Socialist, too!"

We're campaigning to get a progressive turn in November. Get out there, and get prepared!!

I believe in a Medicare For All health care system because Americans deserve the highest quality healthcare–not a broken system that caters to lobbyists, special interests, and drug companies who are ripping off the American people. I’m Levi Sanders, AMA!

I'm Levi Sanders, and I'm running a grassroots progressive campaign for New Hampshire's 1st congressional district seat.


I’ve been working in legal services for the past 18 years–I have represented people in a variety of substantive areas of law including housing law, social security law, public benefits law, and healthcare law–where I represent low-income and the working class who have been beaten up by the system. I’ve been a union member for 24 years, and I served as a senior advisor to my father’s presidential campaign in 2016. It is time that we demand that a system which represents the 99%, and not just the top 1% who have never had it so good.


Overview

The 2018 Midterms are going to be the most consequential elections of our lives. This is a fight for the soul of America; does the government exist for the people and does power lie in the hands of American citizens or does it belong to the top 1%? We need policies that empower citizens by giving everyone a shot at the American Dream. Lobbyists and special interests have a corrosive influence on our national policies. I am rejecting corporate PAC contributions and all donations from corporations. I am running a progressive grassroots campaign.

The political establishment has seen the momentum of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign and is pulling out all the stops to maintain lukewarm centrism over meaningful reform. The NH Democratic Party is charging $ 37,500 for access to the NH-1 voter file. Does it make sense that Republicans in NH-1 get their list free of cost while the Democratic party, the one that supports Campaign Finance Reform shuts out most candidates?

They’re doing the same thing to me that they did to my father Bernard Sanders in 2016. It is simply unacceptable that the NH Democratic Party has not held a single debate between candidates. This favors the establishment candidate, the one that does not support Medicare for All despite overwhelming support for this policy. Debates keep politicians honest and are an essential part of fair, democratic elections. The people of New Hampshire deserve better.

Help me take on the corporate PACs and special interests in the fight for Medicare for All and grassroots progressive values. We need change, not more of the same.


Medicare for All

We need a Medicare for All health care system NOW! Health care is a right, not a privilege. The wealthiest country in the history of the world should guarantee health care for all of its citizens, not just the rich.

Americans are taking Uber rides for emergency visits to the hospital because an ambulance costs thousands of dollars. Senior citizens, even if they are on Medicare, are not entitled to vision tests, glasses, hearing aids, and dental care. Children miss school for weeks to recover on their own from treatable illnesses while mothers and fathers struggle, working night and day to make ends meet.

It makes me so angry to hear the pundits and establishment careerists in office pontificate about healthcare while doing nothing. Shouldn't doctors provide the best treatment possible instead of being bullied by insurance companies? Isn't it time for politicians to take a serious look at the disease of addiction and provide results instead of publicly lamenting then moving onto the latest whim of the 24/7 news cycle?

There is no greater issue today that is affecting Americans than the lack of affordable healthcare. Currently, Americans pay more than three-four times as much as citizens of other wealthy countries. By negotiating a better deal with insurance companies and providing health care without nickel-and-diming American citizens we'll save trillions of dollars long term. People are dying and it is impossible to escape the cycle of poverty when all of your money is going into a broken health care system made for insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies and special interests. Health Care is a human right, not another way for corporations to suck profits out of working class Americans. I will do everything in my power to bring change at a national level on this issue and many others.


I am proud to have the endorsement of the Local Berniecrats, Governor Phil Murphy, members of the legislature in New Hampshire, Mayor Heidi Harmon, and Representative Ro Khanna who is a founding member of the Medicare for All Caucus. This historic caucus will play a significant role in saving lives and reducing the absurd health care costs. We need to elect as many sincere, progressive candidates with a track record of standing up for the disenfranchised. Ultimately, we need to work together and win elections so that we have a government that truly represents the interests of the American people.
