Medicare for All, Cures in our Lifetime
You can learn a lot about our healthcare system by sleeping a few nights in your infant daughter’s hospital room, as I did when our Cricket spent three days in a children’s hospital ICU recently while suffering from a respiratory virus.
It was a scary, strained couple of days; she’s fine now. But what I saw there cemented what I’d already come to believe: We need a health care system in which if you get sick you get seen, as well as one in which if you get seen, you don’t go broke because of it.
I wrote about this over the weekend for NBC News’ THINK opinion section. Click here to check it out.
So, no more half-steps. Ponder your own child’s precious health, and then let’s resolve to do the right thing for our children and their children, too.
As always, I am honored to represent you in Washington, DC, where I remain committed to go big, be bold, and do good to ensure every American has the freedom to dream.
Through all of this, my staff and I will be here for you. Please visit my website or contact my East Bay office at (510) 370-3322 if we can be of service in any way. To stay connected, join me on Twitter @RepSwalwell, and Facebook.
