Access to high-quality healthcare is a universal right.
Offering Medicaid to all Arizonans makes sense. The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) is one of the best-run Medicaid programs in the nation. We should build on that success by allowing every Arizonan to afford to buy into the program.
Holding Big Pharma Accountable
Prices for prescription drugs have skyrocketed in recent years, and instead of supporting consumers, politicians have consistently sided with the corrupt and greedy corruptions of the pharmaceutical industry. It’s time to pursue policies that rein in costs, bolster safety standards, expand coverage for generic drugs, and hold drugmakers accountable for the harmful marketing practices that helped to create our current opioid addiction crisis.
Restoring Kids Care
Arizona’s Republican political establishment fought hard against the expansion of our State Children’s Health Insurance Plan (KidsCare). But we led the charge that pushed back against their empty rhetoric, resulting in the temporary restoration of funding for the program, making healthcare accessible for 30,000 Arizona’s children. We must do more to permanently restore long-term funding.
