Sen. Hirono Supports for Medicare for All
Sen. Sanders unveiled his single-payer healthcare proposal, the Medicare for All plan, today, before a packed room of supporters on Capitol Hill.
“We are all one diagnosis away from a major illness,” said Sen. Hirono. “When that time comes, no one should have to worry about whether they can afford the care that might save their life. I support universal, affordable, accessible, quality healthcare as a right, not a privilege. A single payer, Medicare for All system is a strong articulation of this principle, which is why I support this bill.
“There are other strong proposals that will put us on a path to a single payer system,” Send Hirono sadi. “I will support proposals that reaffirm the principle that universal healthcare is a right, not a privilege.”
