"It’s time for a health care system that is focused on patients, not profits; a system that recognizes health care is a right, not a privilege for the wealthy. We must ensure that everyone in our country has access to quality health care no matter their income, race, gender or zip code.”
A PIVOTAL POINT FOR HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA
While the Affordable Care Act has made great improvements in providing access to health care for more Americans, it is now under relentless attack. The Affordable Care Act was meant to be a step on the path to health care for all, but now the fight is to prevent us from going backwards to the era when an average person’s medical crisis would often be compounded by a financial crisis.
IN CONGRESS, PRAMILA'S FIGHTING FOR YOUR HEALTH CARE
Pramila supports a “single-payer” model that creates comprehensive coverage for all Americans, from preventive care to long-term care, prescription medications, and mental health services.
In Congress, Pramila is a proud co-sponsor of H.R. 676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare For All Act. This model will ensure fair prices from drug companies and make strategic health care investments in communities across this country based on accountability and outcomes, not profits.
- Pramila worked hard during her first year in Congress to beat back repeated GOP attempts to dismantle the ACA and strip care from millions of people.
Pramila also supports efforts to streamline our health care system by reducing the overhead and administrative costs that hinder innovation in the health care space.
