One of the most basic responsibilities of the federal government is to ensure that all citizens - especially the most vulnerable poor and elderly citizens - have access to the quality healthcare that they need. It is unacceptable that in the richest nation in the world, there are 46 million Americans without any health insurance at all. I have worked to protect essential federal programs like Medicare and Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). I support the creation of a Medicare prescription drug benefit that provides real assistance to seniors and the disabled and is easy to understand. I am working to pass legislation to help small businesses provide health insurance to employees. As the cost of care continues to rise, it is critical that the federal government take the steps necessary to ensure that no American is without the care that they need.
