Health care is a right, not a privilege. Among other policies, AFSCME supports strengthening the Affordable Care Act to reduce costs and increase access to health care, and opposes any effort to allow insurance companies to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions.

We support cutting the cost of prescription drugs by negotiating with drug companies. We also support strengthening Medicare and Medicaid so that seniors and the most vulnerable have access to comprehensive, quality care.
