Healthcare is a fundamental human right. No person or family in the richest country on Earth should have to go without healthcare.
Americans routinely avoid healthcare until they are seriously ill and the emergency room is the only option. No one should have to decide between prescription drugs and feeding their family, yet this choice happens every day in the United States.
Medicare for All would cost less per individual than private insurance, and the costs of Medicare for All would be covered if billionaires start paying their fair share of taxes. The economy can only benefit from Medicare for All. Two-thirds of all bankruptcies in the United States are caused by medical bills. Imagine what the economy would look like if these bankruptcies were eliminated!
As congressman, I look forward to working with people on all sides of the issue to craft a sensible Medicare for All program to provide healthcare to all Americans.
