Healthcare is a priority. It must be accessible, affordable and quality-driven for all.
- Medicare and Medicaid as we know it, is a fundamental right of protection through social security, it is being depleted due to mismanagement of prior administrations; Clinton and Obama. My experience for 35 years of working with the disabled allowed me to see and actually experience the deficiencies, and inspired me to repair it. This is not a creative repair, but a common sense repair.
- We must remove the PPOs and HMOs that we are subsidizing. We have allowed lobbyists insurance companies to subsidize insurance companies, when we already have the existing programs of Medicare and Medicaid. Common sense would say, not to pay out, but to put in to already existing programs, make them universal for all, we don’t need 15 different insurance companies.
- President Bush came up with vouchers after he read my 20 page proposal regarding Medicare and Medicaid. We are already paying for these programs via FICA.
- We must remove the money grabbers that are depleting the fund. This is a place to start, a good starting point, a foundation we can build on. My health matters and so does yours.We must break the program down to meaningful affordability. If an individual does not use their insurance for a period of time and have paid into it for say 5 years, this individual can receive a residual check around the Holidays, kind of a thank you for taking care of your healthcare. We don’t need any outside companies to keep the healthcare of our nation. The cost of Healthcare has become another draining expense on the American people.
