Health Care

Mission: Establish universal health care. Access to health care should be a right, not a privilege for the wealthy. The U.S. is the only western developed nation in which a hard-working family can go bankrupt from a hospital stay. Affordable health care is a gateway to economic opportunity and upward mobility. We must defend against cuts to critical programs, like Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security.

  • We must tackle the Opioid crisis head on, including reining in lobbying efforts of pharmaceutical companies who have had an overbearing influence on bringing opiates into our society.
  • We must rein in the cost of prescription drugs. People should not have to choose which medicine they will take based on cost.
