Access to Quality Healthcare for All
We can’t afford to get bogged down in the current debate about health insurance. It’s all too big and too long-term to make a difference for my friends and family who NEED treatment NOW. While I firmly believe that Alabamians pay far too much for their health coverage, the most pressing issue is that even with great coverage, too many Alabamians are left without access to healthcare. I am committed to finding ways to leverage existing facilities to increase care for all Alabamians, from expanding Medicaid and supporting rural hospitals to keep them open, to expanding the staff and services offered at existing Department of Health offices. I will not allow my constituents to continue to die due to lack of access and exorbitant cost of healthcare. I will get to work on immediate progress while committing myself to a more perfect system in the long-term.
