Wayne Messam on Health Care

 

 


Medicare-for-All okay; open to any expansion of health care

"I think that health care should be a matter of civil right in this country. There's been some discussion about 'Medicare for All,' it seems to be the simplest reform idea. I'm open to any reform measure that expands coverage for all people. The American people spend more on health care than any other wealthy country and yet we receive less for it. We must make sure that everyone in this country have access to quality health care. I look forward to all the policy options to make that a reality."

Health Care is a right, not a privilege

Messam tweeted in March that, "Healthcare is a right--not a privilege. Far too many in this country are forced to decide between putting food on the table and paying for their prescription medications or visiting the doctor."
