Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Healthcare

 

Beatty's Pledge on Healthcare

All Americans should have access to affordable, high-quality healthcare, including those with pre-existing conditions. I will continue to work to protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act, while moving toward a “Medicare-For-All-Who-Want-It” program which would give Americans the option to access a Medicare-type system in lieu of private insurance. I also will continue supporting federal investment in groundbreaking medical research, life-saving therapies, and innovative technologies to ensure the health and well-being of generations of Americans.

In addition, I strongly believe that women’s reproductive decisions should be made between them and their doctor.
