I support expanded
Medicare For All and public administration of health insurance.
Quality health care should be publicly provided and financed
with taxes that are progressive and fair. No one should become
insolvent or bankrupt because of illness or injury, and no business
should be distracted or burdened by unpredictable and out-of-control
health insurance costs. While no system can ever be perfect,
there are excellent models in the world for public health care
that produce better results at less cost than we now pay.
Upon election I will immediately co-sponsor and actively promote
legislation for medicare for all. My active advocacy will include
voter education and debunking of myths that are circulated by
proponents of a profit-based insurance system.
My 2010 campaign for State Rep worked closely with MassCare
and the local chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America
to put the question to voters in the 4th Berkshire District
and others nearby, where 70% of votes were cast in favor of
Medicare For All.
In 2011 I publicly testified on June
24 and December
15 before the Joint Committee on Health Care Finance.
