Healthcare should not be for profit.  No one should go bankrupt over medical expenses.  Americans need peace of mind, and must focus on getting well instead of paying exorbitant medical bills.  In a global economy, our businesses can become more competitive when they are not burdened by the extreme costs of providing health insurance for their employees.  We must extend Medicare to ALL age groups.

I believe that we must never take away the right of a woman to seek a safe option for her health care. I believe in access to birth control, health care, as well as housing and childcare assistance. When we focus on empowering women we empower society
