Healthcare

Healthcare is a matter of economic and racial justice.

Healthcare is a basic human right. Abortion is healthcare. No government has the right to take away our freedom to choose our own healthcare. Losing this freedom and not having access to affordable healthcare within local communities affects a higher percentage of rural, poor communities and people of color. 

We need to expand access to healthcare, we need to increase the number of available providers serving in rural communities, we need to increase Medicaid benefits and eligibility by raising the cap from 80% to 130% of the poverty level, and we need to enact a Medicare for All option.

A strong physical, mental, and emotional condition creates a strong, healthy workforce that is better prepared to create a healthy economy.
