Achieve universal health care

Health care is a human right. Too many families are burdened by medical debt or can’t afford the care they need. We need affordable, accessible health care for everyone, and all proposals to achieve that, including Medicare for All, must be on the table. In addition, no one should have to choose between putting groceries on the table and paying for medicine, which is why I’m working to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

Access to affordable health care for all has always been a top priority, but it has become more urgent during the global health pandemic. I'm working to increase vaccination rates in our communities, strengthen and improve the ACA while advancing universal health care, and provide support for frontline workers. I also support robust funding for our public health infrastructure, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The United States must be a leader in efforts to curb COVID-19 with the best available science, and we must also work on prevention and improving our response to future global health pandemics.
