Healthcare and Housing

I like the idea of a Medicare for all system.  Medicare works very well.  I support incrementally over time expanding the Medicare system (lower the age down to 60, followed by 55, then 50, etc.) until everybody was covered.  I support the idea of protecting one's conscience if they oppose certain medical procedures.  There would be guidelines to determine if the person/organization qualifies for the "conscience clause".  We also need to stop situations of Americans losing everything they own due to medical bill expenses.  Long term care needs to be included.

Housing is a human right. I will advocate for section 8 housing expansion (or some type of national and California expansion of housing). It is unacceptable that people that are working that can not afford housing have to live in the street.
