Healthcare justice matters to me because everyone needs good, affordable healthcare. People struggle to see a doctor because it’s too expensive, especially for families. My family’s health is important. If I don’t have good healthcare from my job, how can I make sure they get good medical attention? Families that have members with terminal diseases or disabilities need to have good healthcare to continue fighting to be healed or for longer lives. No one should have to pay high insurance rates, and our families should be able to see any doctor at an affordable rate. In my community there’s a lot of elders and families with a household of 2+ working in a healthcare facility. I see and hear the complaints of not being able to afford medicine or a procedure has to be delayed because of insurance. If a family has 4 little ones with recurring colds, insurance only covers so much. You have co-pays, and parents are already paying too much just to have health insurance. How can they aid their families? Keep them healthy? I support what is gonna help us get better healthcare within our community because my family matters and my community deserves it.
