Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Every single American deserves access to affordable, high-quality, and accessible healthcare. For too many Michiganders, cost remains a major barrier to accessing healthcare. I support protections for pre-existing conditions and will continue fighting against any rollbacks of these essential protections. We need to work together to fix the Affordable Care Act (ACA), not dismantle it. In Congress, I have worked to make healthcare more affordable for working families and older adults. To further lower healthcare costs, I also voted to end the health insurance tax, medical device tax, and Cadillac tax.
Increasing access to world class healthcare should be something we all agree on, but instead of working toward this goal, Republicans in Washington have focused on dismantling the Affordable Care Act.
In Congress, I voted for bipartisan legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs and finally allow Medicare to negotiate with the big drug companies, and I will continue working hard to lower premiums, reign in prescription drug costs, safeguard essential health protections, grow our healthcare workforce, and promote research and innovation to improve the health and wellbeing of all Americans
