Today in 1922, researchers at the University of Toronto announced the discovery of insulin. They sold the patent for $1 so it would be available to all.

Billy Koehler died because he couldn't afford a defibrillator.

30,000 Americans a year die waiting for health care because of the cost. Medicare for All now!

Are you free if you can't afford to see a doctor? Are you free if you must work 80 hours a week to buy food? Are you free if you can't pay for insulin you need to survive?
