Health care is a human right. Covering everyone with a program like Medicare for All while preserving access to private plans reduces overall costs and is the right thing to do. In addition to covering everyone, we must reduce our high maternal mortality rate, drug abuse, and gun violence. It’s time we chose policies which ensure a healthy future for everyone.
Keeping America on the right track requires diverse solutions that can be tailored to fit as needed. That's why we need a comprehensive jobs plan-one that includes these 5 priorities:
- portable benefits
- infrastructure investment
- wage fairness
- trade and collective bargaining
- access to capital
We must ensure that every American receives their full portion of the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Democracy requires that all have equal access to the vote, adequate protections under the constitution, are free from unreasonable prosecution and are treated as humans no matter the country of origin.
