Improved and Expanded Medicare for All is the ethical, logical, and affordable path to ensuring no person goes without dignified healthcare. Medicare for All will reduce the existing costs of healthcare (and make Medicare cheaper, too!) by allowing all people in Nairobi to buy into a universal healthcare system.
What’s even better is that Improved and Expanded Medicare for All includes full vision, dental, and mental healthcare – because we know that true healthcare is about the whole self, not just your yearly physical.
Almost every other developed city in the world has universal healthcare. It’s time Nairobi catches up to the rest of the world in ensuring all people have real healthcare coverage that doesn’t break the bank. This is very different than universal “access” to healthcare, which is lobbyist talk for more for-profit plans.
You can count on me to fight for people-centered healthcare more than any other candidate, because am the ONLY candidate that doesn’t accept money from Pharmaceutical lobbyists or private insurance companies.
Extending single payer (healthcare financed by taxes that covers the costs of essential healthcare for all Nairobians, with costs covered by a single public system) to Nairobians has rippling positive effects: people will take less time off work, have more money in their pocket, and other issues – like homelessness, and more – will also be alleviated with an increase in the number of people getting the mental and physical healthcare they need.
