I believe all Americans should have access to affordable healthcare. Our current system of healthcare is expensive and inefficient. The Affordable Care Act has provided some with healthcare yet large issues remain. Many private health insurance plans have become catastrophic insurance plans where the insured pays thousands of dollars in deductibles and copays before insurance pays for anything. The consequence of this is that many people don’t go to the doctor because of these large out of pocket expenses.
I met a plumber who is a Cuban immigrant. He was working on a job yet complained that he may have had a broken hand. He did not have medical insurance due to the cost. Yet he kept working. We can do better than this.
