Health Care

Access to affordable and high-quality healthcare is a fundamental right for every American. It is crucial that we ensure that every individual in our country has the opportunity to receive the healthcare they need. Unfortunately, many people in Michigan, especially seniors, face significant barriers to accessing healthcare due to the high cost. I am committed to supporting protections for pre-existing conditions and fighting against any attempts to roll back these essential safeguards.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been instrumental in increasing access to healthcare, with over 14 million people signing up this year alone. It is disappointing to see that instead of working towards expanding access to healthcare, Republicans in Washington have focused on dismantling the ACA. The ACA is working, and it is essential for Congress to continue strengthening and expanding it. I believe in creating a public option and a Medicare buy-in to introduce more competition and coverage options in the healthcare marketplace.

Many seniors in Michigan are faced with the difficult choice of prioritizing essential needs like food and heating over the cost of necessary medications. I have consistently voted for bipartisan legislation aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs and allowing Medicare to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies. Additionally, I have supported provisions to cap the cost of insulin at $35 per month. I will continue to work tirelessly to lower premiums, control prescription drug costs, protect essential health provisions, expand our healthcare workforce, and promote research and innovation to enhance the health and well-being of all Americans.
