Healthcare

As a country, Americans pay far more for care than every other developed nation.  Nearly 70,000 citizens die every year because they cannot access care and 62% of cancer patients report being in debt due to their treatment. Go Fund Me is the largest de-facto healthcare provider in the country with 1/3 of fundraisers for medical costs.  This is a disgrace.  Neither of my opponents have any solid solutions to this #1 issue that has been inflamed by the pandemic.  The majority of Americans support a single payer system which is both more humane and fiscally responsible. 

Healthcare by definition and design is meant to cover loss, not maintenance and that is why it will never work for healthcare.  Imagine if your homeowners had to pay for new windows or a new roof, or if your auto insurance had to pay for gas or tires.  The premiums would be outrageous.  Healthcare insurance companies do not provide any product and their service is to "negotiate pricing" which they are horrific at.  It is time for them to move on and adapt. They can change their book of business and write other lines of profitable insurance that will enable them to retain their employees in the US.   No more outsourcing jobs overseas.  While you and I fight for access and affordable care, healthcare lobbyists funded by OUR tax and premium dollars are working overtime in congress to get as much subsidizing and deregulation as they can.  In fact, the healthcare and pharmaceutical companies lead all other industries in lobbying and their efforts have paid off.  The ability for Medicare to negotiate with Pharma for prescriptions drugs is all but dead in Biden's BBB and that is the direct result of record lobbying by the industry to protect their profits.  

We need representatives that will stand up to the lobbyists.   For years we have been denied treatments and prescriptions while their profits soar.  It is time to TELL THEM "COVERAGE DENIED" when they come looking for more handouts.  I want to be the one to tell them that our government is working for the people again and their long reign of corruption has ended.  

I believe the solution is Medicare for All and I am the only candidate in this district that supports a single payer system.

First, I believe healthcare is a human right, and secondly, it is the most fiscally responsible solution as indicated by numerous bi and non-partisan research and data.

Here in New Jersey many of us pay nearly half our income on healthcare, one way or another. Sometimes we are triple covered. We are paying for private health insurance premiums. NJ Employers are paying for Worker’s Compensation AND private health insurance. We are paying Personal Injury Protection (no-fault) through our personal auto insurance. Cost sharing for our hardworking public employees, including our teachers and first responders, continues to increase while their benefits are reduced year after year.  This should have been stopped a long time ago.


As a New Jersey licensed Property Casualty (including Health) underwriter for nearly twenty years, you can trust me when I say we are being ripped off. But many members of congress will tell you that we must keep private, employer-based insurance. Others will advocate for a public option. They all know that a single payer Medicare for All system is the best option for the American people, both financially and in actual care. But they continue to deny this because they rely on the profitable health insurance industry to support their reelection campaigns. Please press my opponents on their plans and policy proposals to fix this issue in our country. Be sure to ask how their solution will affect the taxes of New Jersey residents. M4A is the only solution that will provide better care and reduce taxes and I am the only candidate that supports it!

We have an opportunity to turn this around in 2022. I am the candidate who will do this. My family and I have been denied care while paying exorbitant premiums for years. I have a dog in this fight. I want better for you and for me, for my children and your children. I will work for taxpayers, not the lobbyists.
