“Access to healthcare should not depend on the size of your paycheck. It should be a right for all. But with over 27 million Americans still uninsured, we have work to do. To ensure high quality, universal healthcare access, we must take bold action to make care more affordable while expanding access and improving existing coverage. This can be done by building on the success of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), not dismantling it.

“Steve believes we will improve American healthcare by focusing on five core principles: 

  • “Increase access to quality healthcare 
  • “Make care more affordable 
  • “Improve care in rural and underserved communities 
  • “Strengthen Medicare 
  • “Take the opioid fight to drug companies and invest in community solutions”
