Health Care

Access to quality and affordable health care is critical to our prosperity as a nation. Our current healthcare system focuses largely on treating symptoms, not finding cures so our priority should be funding cutting edge research. Social Security and Medicare are critical safety net programs that serve our nation’s most vulnerable, so we need to ensure their benefits meet the needs of American seniors by accurately reflecting their cost of living. Over the past hundred years, scientists have made great strides in combatting deadly diseases such as polio and the measles, both of which have been virtually eliminated in the United States. We need to support initiatives that increase investment and create opportunities for great scientific breakthroughs.
