Jesse Gordon on Health Care

Editor-in-chief, OnTheIssues.org

 


Guaranteed healthcare as a human right

Q: Healthcare is a human right. Our healthcare system needs to work for all of us. We must guarantee healthcare as a right of citizenship by enacting a Medicare for all single-payer healthcare system, as well as lowering the price for prescription drugs.

A: Agree.

Candidate's position on this issue: Guaranteed healthcare is the right goal, but Medicare-for-all is just one possible solution. I support the guarantee as a human right, regardless of the paperwork and payment method.
