Rick believes that healthcare is a right of all people and not a privilege. In the United States of America no one should die because they can't afford to see a doctor. America's health care system is broken. Rick will fight for a single-sayer Medicare for All system that will lower health care costs and provide better services to all.
Rick believes that in the richest country in the history of the world no one who works forty hours a week should live in poverty. Adjusted for inflation, our minimum wage is lower than that of a worker 50 years ago. Rick will fight for a $15 dollar living wage tied to inflation that will help so many low income workers enter the middle class.
For District 23 to compete in a highly technical and globalized world we need the best educated workforce. Unfortunately, the cost of higher education drives students to abandon their dreams or be burdened with crushing tuition debt. It is time that the United States join the rest of the industrialized world and provide tuition free public colleges and universities to all its students.
