for All

Healthcare is a basic human right

No one should have to choose between keeping a roof over their head and getting the medicine that they need to survive. The United States needs to step into the 21st century like other nations and offer a comprehensive single payer healthcare system. On healthcare we need to stop following and go back to leading.

I support Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for All” program. If elected, I will sign on and fight for passage of this critical bill introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Debbie Dingell. Patients would not be responsible for any cost sharing of medical expenses ending premiums, copays, and deductibles. The government coverage would include hospitals, doctors, preventive care, prescription medications, dental care, and vision care. This plan also stops private insurers from selling plans that compete with Medicare for All.
