It’s time for our country to acknowledge that healthcare is a right. Families should get the medical treatment and medications they need, when they need them, without breaking the bank.
No mother should ever have to hesitate before taking her children to the emergency room when they are in the need of immediate care. No father should ever forgo life-saving medication because he can’t pay the medical bills. No family should ever need to claim bankruptcy because they had the audacity to live after an accident.
Our country is in a healthcare crisis, and it’s time for Medicare for All. Passing Medicare for All will mean the end of pharmaceutical companies price-gouging Americans who need prescription drugs. It will mean that no one gets turned down or ripped off by a health insurance company for having a pre-existing condition. And it will mean that once and for all every American will have the healthcare they deserve.
