For most of his adult life – on active duty in the Army and now as an Army Reservist – Dan and his family received their health care through the military. He believes that all Americans have a right to quality, affordable health care, just as he has received. The United States is the richest and most powerful nation in the history of the world, but our healthcare system fails to ensure that all of our citizens have access to the medical care they need. Our system is also excessively expensive. Dan wants to strengthen the Affordable Care Act by adding a Medicare-for-All Option, so that anyone without access to private insurance through their employer, or does not like their insurance, has the option to buy into Medicare at an income-adjusted rate.
