Medicaid expansion provides very important efficiencies in healthcare, I want to create a path for inexpensive preventive care instead of expensive crisis care. Insured kids should not have to watch their uninsured parents suffer. Medicaid expansion maintains healthy caregivers and helps small business and their employees focus on their business, not their health costs. The expansion would protect the 1 in 7 women who experience postpartum depression by extending their care and it prevents uncompensated hospital care from increasing.
- Healthcare is important to sustaining a productive workforce, it secures better attendance in our school allowing all students to succeed.
- Healthcare costs are the leading cause of bankruptcy. Medical bills shouldn't lead to homelessness. I will support our working class, who fuel this country, to have access to affordable care.
