Fight for Medicare for All and ensure all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care
In Congress, I will fight for Medicare for All and work to ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care.
We all know someone who we care about who hasn’t gone to the doctor to get something treated because they couldn’t afford the deductible or copay, even though they had insurance. Health care for all means access for all. It means a health care system that isn’t crippled by these bankrupting deductibles and copays, allowing drug prices to be negotiable, and ensuring that Americans cannot be discriminated against because of pre-existing conditions. I’m a cancer survivor, and have lost family members to cancer -- our families deserve care regardless of medical history.
Here in Northern New Mexico, access to health care in rural areas is a critical component that cannot be ignored. I have helped build rural health clinics, and I’ve seen what it takes to create access to basic care in rural areas. We need adequate funding for clinics in rural areas, and better incentives for doctors to practice in rural areas.
