Ensuring Access to Affordable Healthcare

Quality health care should be a right, not a privilege. Every American deserves access to affordable health insurance, including accessibly priced prescription drugs. Congress should strengthen — not repeal — the ACA. We oppose efforts to block-grant Medicaid or to privatize Medicare. Mental health care should be funded and insured in the same manner as other forms of care. We support the reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), as well as ensuring racial equity in access to high-quality affordable healthcare, and supporting federal efforts to combat racial inequities in medicine, including maternal healthcare, and housing. In addition, every woman must have the right to choose and the right to access to quality reproductive health care. We support the vital work of organizations providing critical health services to women.
