Health Care

John supports keeping the protections offered under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but he recognizes that our current health care system does not work for all Americans. John will work to implement a single-payer healthcare system that will offer universal healthcare coverage and bring down costs.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies may no longer deny insurance to people with pre-existing conditions or charge women more than men for comparable insurance plans. The ACA also allows young people to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26.

John believes that we should keep in place these protections that Americans have come to depend on to survive. John also understands that the ACA is not working for everyone. Partisan sabotage of the Affordable Care Act has resulted in rising premiums, and Congress has not acted in a meaningful way to drive down the costs of medical services or pharmaceuticals. John supports H.R. 676, The Expanded & Improved Medicare for All Act, which was introduced in the House in 2017. This legislation would implement a single-payer healthcare system that would cover urgent and emergency care, as well as provide preventative medical care, prescription drug coverage, dental coverage, and vision coverage.

Single-payer healthcare systems are among the most effective and cost efficient in the world, and they have a proven track record of driving down the costs of medical services and pharmaceuticals.
