Health care is a human right. It is essential to everything we do: our personal and family health, our ability to work and run businesses, our financial stability and our plans for retirement. We must chart a path that guarantees high quality healthcare for every American.
I support efforts to guarantee universal care, including current proposals for Medicare for All. The United States is a wealthy nation that spends far too much on far too little care. With Medicare for All, we will save billions of dollars a year, and instead of paying for burdensome paperwork requirements and bonuses for corporate CEOs, we will provide healthcare for 30 million uninsured Americans and tens of millions more who currently have insufficient protection.
The TX-10 incumbent, Michael McCaul, is complicit in every Republican attack on our healthcare. He voted dozens of times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, including its protections for pre-existing conditions. He has also done nothing while rural hospitals are closed.
My commitment is to fight for the people of the Texas 10th, for your health and your security. Until we achieve Medicare for All, we must defend the important gains we have made for Medicare and Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program and the Affordable Care Act. We must lower prescription drug prices and pursue other important reforms. And most of all, we must put people before profits, and ensure every American has the care and support they need.
