Lee Saunders on Mayor Buttigieg’s Health Care Equity Proposal

Saunders praises the Mayor’s efforts to address inequities in health care, stresses the importance of expanding both access and quality of care

WASHINGTON — 

AFSCME President Lee Saunders issued the following statement expressing praise for Mayor Buttigieg’s efforts to address inequities on our health care system:

“AFSCME members have long understood that access to health insurance is not the same as access to quality health care. AFSCME public service workers fight every day to both expand access and quality of care in every community around the country. We are encouraged that Mayor Buttigieg intends to address the disparities in access to health care by providing more resources to ensure health care equity.”
