I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.

Strongly Disagree   

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

We need competitive pricing and competition with insurance companies for customers. Open nonprofit organizations to assist in financial assistance for those who can't afford it. Let insurance company across states to provide insurance coverage. Establish saving plans for families to come together as group members plan for better negotiation with insurance companies. A new idea i don't think ever been tried to allow nonprofit organizations as churches get involved in having members using their church to establish policies that could be transferred from church to another church if members had to re locate for what ever reason. Also ensure Medicare is funded for those who have no other means of health care coverage.
