Today we're proud to release our health care policy statement. For too long, people in this country have struggled to afford their health care, putting off preventative care visits because they feared the cost of care and staying in jobs they dislike because they can't risk a lapse in insurance coverage. This has to stop. We believe that health care is a human right and that transitioning to a universal single-payer system would remove the cost burden for American families and businesses and ensure that every single American is covered. You can view the policy statement here.
It was a great week. I enjoyed talking with lots of people around the district and learning more about what people are worried about and how I can help. The rally in St. Joseph was particularly exciting. We had a crowd of over 200 people in the park and throughout the community, demanding that we protect the ACA.
If you haven't signed up for emails or joined the volunteer team, please do so soon. We launched the Twitter account today, so you now have another way to follow along as we build this movement. I hope to see you next week.
