Health Care

 Despite the monumental efforts of President Obama and the Affordable Care Act, our health care system remains one of the largest issues we face as a country.  Pharmaceutical corporations continue to undermine public health by placing profit over people, and our citizens are dying as a result. The leaders of the GOP have undermined the ACA at every turn, and it is nearing collapse as a result.

If elected, I will fight with our representatives Turner, Agers and Fisher, alongside Senator Van Duyn, to push for medicaid expansion in North Carolina, and pledge to support all efforts to realize a single payer healthcare system in the United States.

I will defend and promote further funding for our public health clinics and the Department of Health and Human Services, and promote initiatives to broaden the scope and access of these programs to the people of Buncombe County. 

I will work with our Police, Sheriff and Justice departments to create comprehensive and common sense approaches to tackling the opioid epidemic that is so painfully effecting our community. 

No parent should have to choose between putting food on their table and seeking medical aid. No business owner should have to cut payroll to make their insurance premiums. Thousands of good paying jobs would be created by making the change to single payer, and it is well past time our federal government attended to the needs of their constituents and stopped pandering to lobbyists and corporate interests, and put the people first.
