While the Affordable Care Act did not solve all of America’s unique health care challenges, the law made health care far more accessible and affordable for millions of Americans, including thousands right here on the North Coast.
The mission to bring about universal health care cannot stop with the Affordable Care Act, which is why I am a cosponsor of the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. It is time for the United States to join the standard set by all other industrialized countries and create a universal, single-payer healthcare system. Medicare is a strong, successful healthcare program that delivers quality services. Giving all Americans the option to participate in Medicare would expand access to affordable healthcare.
Medicare is already one of the most successful programs in our nation’s history, and the more people who participate, the better it will be for everyone. I am also an original cosponsor of the Choose Medicare Act in the 115th Congress to make Medicare available to all Americans by offering individuals the opportunity to enroll and allowing businesses of all sizes to purchase coverage for their employees. This bill would help lower drug costs, let millions of Americans buy into first-rate and reasonably-priced health care, and give businesses a new health insurance option for their employees.
