It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Abortion should only be allowed when the life of the mother or the unborn child is at risk. I believe abortion should only be allowed if the mother is in mortal danger or the unborn child is not going to survive outside the womb.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
