Giving birth to a child shouldn’t bankrupt a family. Battling cancer shouldn’t break the bank either. I support the Affordable Care Act and any and all bipartisan efforts to improve it. You heard me right: I support Obamacare. It’s not perfect, but it’s better than the vast wasteland of nothingness that’s been put forward to replace it.

I support Medicaid expansion, and I’m furious that conservatives in Tennessee let our federal tax dollars subsidize health insurance for people in other states.

The Affordable Care Act isn’t a final solution to the high costs of healthcare. Single payer healthcare is the only way to control costs and provide universal access. With single payer health care, we can have the best healthcare in small towns across Tennessee the same as we do in major metro areas.
