It is guaranteed in our Declaration of Independence that all people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. None of this is possible, especially life, without adequate healthcare.
Access to full healthcare is therefore a right of all people, and not a privilege or commodity money can buy. Far too many are being shut out from this essential right.
Our healthcare system is grossly inefficient with skyrocketing costs and an overly complicated bureaucracy that increases the burden on patients and providers. We need a healthcare system that significantly reduces overhead and administrative costs that threaten the financial security of our nation.
Not only is this the right thing to do, but it’s also good for our economy. When we invest in the health of our communities, we invest in our productivity and economy.
- By simplifying our payment structure, reducing administrative costs, and incentivizing preventative measures, we can lower healthcare spending.
