Renee Hoagenson for Healthcare
Medicare for all is where this country needs to be. Consider that we agree as a country that every child should be educated in the public school system. Isn’t healthcare an even more basic need than education? It is only logical that we would have basic healthcare available to all Americans. We are a civil society in which we have collective needs. Healthcare is one of those needs. Payments for healthcare and medicine should be considered more like utility payments, not free market. There was a time not long ago when healthcare was not a profit center. Now, it has become a profiteering level profit center for some while many literally die due to financial hardships. The United States is the only industrialized country in the world that isn’t providing a level of healthcare for its people. There are many models we can consider in how to implement this. Ultimately, Medicare for all is where the country needs to be. I will work to that end.
