HEALTH CARE
via MEDICARE

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.
