As a Navy Supply Officer on the USS Saratoga during Desert Storm, I was responsible for a Budget of $425 Million dollars for 22 Departments.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
I believe the each working individual is responsible to plan and choose their respective health coverage.

They should only receive healthcare if they pay for the coverage themselves or the government has them in a holding facility while being returned to their country of origination. I do believe the government should provide healthcare to adult disabled persons or persons under the supervision of a government agency. There should be some type of government income prorated healthcare coverage for any U.S. Citizen that is homeless, unemployed with no coverage or unable to pay for publicly offered program.
