EXPANDING ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE
Every person in our community deserves access to quality, affordable healthcare. Not only is expanding access to healthcare the right thing to do – it’s also a smart investment for our families, our businesses, and our economy as a whole.
Access to healthcare means that families can live without the fear of medical bills causing bankruptcy. It means that parents and students alike can pursue their dreams without basing career choices upon the availability of health insurance. It means that entrepreneurs can launch new businesses without fear of losing their employer-based insurance.
We can support quality healthcare by:
Expanding Medicaid – Medicaid expansion will provide affordable healthcare for over 600,000 North Carolinians. North Carolina’s taxpayers already pay for these life-saving services, but politicians in Raleigh are blocking this critical effort for political reasons. It’s time to prioritize the needs of everyday North Carolinians through this common-sense, bipartisan measure.
Providing Critical Resources in the Fight Against Addiction – Every day, thousands of North Carolinians battle addiction – a fight that affects individuals and families alike. We must continue to provide the resources our community needs in the critical fight against opioids specifically and addiction generally.
