Healthcare

New Jersey has the most expensive public health care system in the nation. Some projections indicate that next year’s Affordable Care Act premiums could increase by 40%, most of which will be paid for by our tax dollars. We will also see soaring premium increases across the board as the insurance industry seeks to recoup losses due to COVID-19. So will health insurance companies, which yielded net profits of 28 billion dollars just two years ago, increase the cost of healthcare when we need it most? Of course they will!

No one “likes” abortion and while I will always support a women’s right to choose, I believe the best approach for unwanted pregnancies should be proactive rather than reactive. As a young woman, my healthcare insurance did not provide for contraceptives so I went to Planned Parenthood for my birth control. It was affordable and kept me safe from unwanted pregnancies. I believe all citizens should have access to birth control and Medicare for All should include this valuable coverage along with STI treatment and contraceptives.

The lack of universal healthcare is another detriment to American society. We don't need health systems influenced by corporate interests. We need healthcare that actually is healthcare! Medicare for All is a great start, but it must be improved and expanded.

No more endless wars. Justice in our country comes from bringing justice to others. By removing itself from conflicts it has no business being in, the US Military Budget can be decreased by 50%, 75%, or even more! This would free up a lot of money to fund programs including Universal Healthcare.

As someone who worked in the FDA under both Republican and Democratic Administrations, Rik knows what is broken with our healthcare system and how to fix it.  Disastrous socialist policies like so-called ‘Medicare for All’ is not the answer, as it will lead to the end of private insurance, the doubling of taxes on nearly every America, and rationing of care.  That is unacceptable and it must be stopped.  Rik support the following prescription to fix our broken system and still deliver the best healthcare in the world: 1) allow competition across state lines as it relates to insurance companies to bring down costs; 2) eliminate excessive regulatory mandates and administrative burdens on medical professionals; 3) reverse damaging policies like taxing insurance premiums; 4) crack down on irresponsible pharmaceutical companies and hold them accountable to federal laws; 5) get new and innovative therapies onto pharmacy shelves to treat unmet medical needs; 6) increase transparency into pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) practices and manufacturer drug pricing decisions; 7) cut down FDA approval time for new medicines; 8) bring drug manufacturing back to the U.S. (and away from China) to lower the price of drugs and create American jobs.
