When our friends, family, and neighbors are healthy, it is not only good for them and their families, it is good for everyone in our communities.
Under the Affordable Care Act, states have the option to expand Medicare to cover those who don’t qualify for subsidies but still can’t afford the outrageous premiums. However, the extremist Republicans in Tallahassee, including Keith Perry, have consistently thwarted any effort to expand Medicare to our state’s most vulnerable. It is unacceptable that Tallahassee would play politics with people’s healthcare—and their lives. Olysha will fight to expand Medicare in our state and fight for affordable, quality health care for every Floridian.
But it isn’t enough to talk about expanding Medicaid, she is committed to fighting for a single-payer health care system like Medicare for All. She is the only candidate talking about long-term healthcare strategies like Medicare for All.
Because Olysha understands that health care is not a luxury item and that families should not have to choose between medical bills and groceries.
