Since the debate over healthcare began, Dave’s number one priority has been to ensure Iowans have access to quality, affordable healthcare coverage. He will continue to fight to ensure any healthcare reform bill provides coverage for the uninsured, allows young people to stay on their parents’ insurance, makes preventative care free, lowers prescription drug costs, bans denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, and prohibits insurance companies from charging women more just because they’re female. It is important to protect these benefits for Iowans and Dave remains committed to ensuring that any healthcare legislation is implemented in a way that works for Iowa families.

On the other hand, Dave has fought against Republican attempts to rip healthcare coverage from 24 million Americans, ration care for the nation’s most disadvantaged, including seniors, children, people with disabilities and the working poor, put increased pressure on rural hospitals and implement an “age-tax, all to give a tax break to millionaires, billionaires and corporations. Dave is committed to fighting to ensure all Iowans have access to quality, affordable healthcare coverage.
