    Providing Healthcare for All

    All Americans should have access to affordable health care that builds upon our existing health care system, and uses existing providers, doctors, and plans. When making healthcare decisions, patients should be able to directly rely on their doctor’s opinion rather than insurance companies. We must strengthen our healthcare system by incorporating the latest technology, increasing the number of skilled practitioners, and providing culturally competent human services.

    That's a bit thin.

      We are still in the process of outlining specific policy and platforms, however, we welcome any input you may have or specific policy questions you may have.

        I would have thought that with around 50 million uninsured that a specific policy for health care would have been one of the first subjects to have a clear policy outlined from the get go.

        I'm an expat living in a territory where we have a single payer system and probably the best system in the world, Martinique [governed by France].

        Would you say the French system being cheaper and which has a better track record could be adapted to the US. Since private medical insurance has lead to a charity [normally operating only in the third world] setting up shop in a US city to provide emergency free health care.
