Healthcare

 

Committee mission:

We need your support for affordable healthcare. Over 20 million Americans count on a marketplace plan for insurance. If the Affordable Care Act is overturned, millions will lose access to healthcare.

It is the purpose of the Healthcare Committee to educate and promote understanding of the various health care needs and resources in the United States.  It is our belief that healthcare is a human right.  It is our intention to advocate to ensure that legislation policy and practice preserve that human right.
