Lynn Huidekoper, RN
I have been an RN for 38 years and have cared for all populations, old, young, in all settings-hospitals, clinics, home care. County hospitals, for-proft hospitals, Kaiser, teaching hospitals, ER's. My passion is getting Single Payer Universal Health Care for all in the US.
Keep the ACA, Medicare, Medicaid intact for the American people
Health Care is a Human Right. To deny ALL Americans access to health care is immoral and unjust. Medicare is a successful government program that is cost effective with only a 3% overhead. It allows people over 65 able to receive health care. Every other industrialized country has a program that covers all of their residents. Medicaid helps low income people have access to health care. It should not be defunded. Even with the ACA 30 million Americans can't afford health care so go without essential preventive health care. Do not repeal the ACA unless you write a plan that is just and covers ALL Americans.To not come up with a plan that allows EVERYONE access to health care, regardless of income, would be a travesty in the richest country on Earth.
