Kamala Harris affordable health care for all

https://kamalaharris.org/issue/health-care/

Right now, the American health care system costs too much and allows insurance companies to run the show. Kamala believes health care should be a right, not a privilege only for those who can afford it. That’s why she has a plan for Medicare for All that will guarantee coverage for every American, lower health care costs, allow a choice between private and public Medicare plans and force insurance companies to play by our rules.

When Kamala’s mother was diagnosed with cancer, it was one of the worst days of her life. But Kamala was so grateful that her mother had Medicare. She believes we must guarantee Medicare for All.

Kamala’s plan for Medicare for All expands on the progress made under Obamacare, immediately offers an improved Medicare buy-in, and transitions the country to a Medicare system we are all in so that we can take on insurance and drug companies. Her plan will reduce costs, keep options for public or private Medicare plans, and ensure a smooth transition.

Affordable health care also means lowering the cost of prescription drugs by taking on pharmaceutical manufacturers and private insurance companies. That’s what Kamala has done throughout her career. As Attorney General, she won a more than $320 million settlement from insurance companies that defrauded elderly Californians and people with disabilities. As president, Kamala will continue the fight. She’ll prosecute opioid makers profiting from the health crisis they’ve helped cause, allow Medicare to negotiate for cheaper prescription prices, and shut the revolving door between pharmaceutical companies and our government.

2. Recommended.

 

Imagine making the rules for the insurance companies rather than allowing them to make the rules.

16. So much fighting over who has the best Health care plan

 

Seems like Joe is mad at Warren and arguing who has the best plan for health care. Well Harris's plan seems to be the best one I have seen.

Maybe they should both read her plan!
