Health Care is a Right.
I support universal coverage—Medicare for all or a New England compact for single payer as we move toward federal coverage. This is my #1 priority; here are some doable solutions:
Fund the expansion of Medicaid immediately.
Support Universal In-Home Care, which will dramatically increase the quality of life of those in need of care, and of the (mostly women) caregivers.
Cut costs by promoting healthy living: sleep, exercise, nutritious food, three free prescriptions!
Increase support to community based mental health system to provide the most effective treatment and avoid ineffective and expensive hospital and incarceration costs. Also let's support alternative therapies for stress reduction, pain management and addiction such as acupuncture, massage, Reiki.
