Health and Health Care

Everyone deserves to have health care they can afford.

I support plans for immediate tax rebates and deductions for families facing health care premium increases and in the House, I will work hard to reduce the cost of health care by eliminating waste, lowering prescription drug costs, and increasing transparency in billing.

In addition, I will work to improve:

  • Access to preventative medical care for all Minnesotans

  • Proper nutrition for our young children and seniors

  • Access to mental health services that are reliable and affordable

  • Senior home health care

  • Access to affordable prescriptions

  • Bike paths and sidewalks for healthier living

  • Sensible public transit options

  • Recreational opportunities for all community residents
Health is wealth, and Minnesota families deserve a healthy environment and access to good health care options.  We can improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of our health care system and serve all Minnesotans, no matter their age or financial circumstance.
Health is a quality of life issue.  Healthy families mean healthy communities.  It is essential we help families stay healthy so children do better in school and parents do better at work and at home.  Healthy employees are happier, more reliable workers. 
Healthy seniors are better able to age-in-place and remain active participants in the community.
