Healthcare

Every American has the right to quality, affordable healthcare. 

In Congress, Zephyr will fight to make sure health care is available to everyone by:

  • Taking on the big drug and insurance companies.  Medicare, which pays more medicine than any other entity in the economy, should be able to use its full negotiating power to get the best prices for our tax dollars.

  • Closing the dental care gap.  Untreated oral health issues have spiraling consequences, from pain and tooth loss to chronic health conditions and sometimes job loss. 

  • Fighting efforts to privatize Medicare and working to expand access to this vital program and ensure that it remains accessible and affordable. 

  • Protecting women’s reproductive health care by defending Planned Parenthood and fighting for the right of every woman to have access to preventive care, affordable contraception and safe, legal abortion.
