​I lost my mother to cancer in 2015. She had been a doctor, a pediatric radiologist and a professor of medicine, for her entire career. Despite access to the best treatments available, she lost her fight. But because of her socio-economic status, she had a chance. She survived for five and a half years after diagnosis. Most people are not so lucky. 

I believe heathcare should be a right, not a privilege. Nearly every other industrialized country has figured out how to provide healthcare for all citizens. It's shameful that the United States of America has not. Here's my plan:

  • Mandate universal healthcare: Every American has the right to medical care.

  • Advance a Medicare-for-All, single-payer system. Healthcare, of all industries, should be a non-profit industry.

  • Expand Medicaid to cover more poor Americans.

  • Fight the rollback of reproductive rights and funding for women's health initiatives.

  • Establish paid family and medical leave.

  • Hold drug companies accountable for price-gouging.
