In the richest country in the history of the planet, it is obscene that some Americans cannot afford healthcare一or are stuck paying way too much for lousy care. The way Chris sees it, we cannot keep settling for an expensive, profit-driven healthcare system that leaves too many uninsured, under-insured, ripped-off, and left without real choices. Medical bills simply should not be a leading cause of bankruptcy, as they are today.
Chris is fighting to guarantee healthcare for every American and believes that healthcare is a human right. He supports efforts to lower the Medicare eligibility age; to expand Medicare to include dental, vision, and hearing services; to allow Medicare to negotiate better prescription drug prices; to expand Medicaid coverage to home care services for seniors and people with disabilities; and to close the Medicaid coverage gap. Chris will work hard to expand Medicare to achieve coverage for all Americans.
