Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez+ Your Authors @AOC US Representative,NY-14 (BX & Queens). In a modern, moral, & wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. She/her. Dec. 16, 2019 1 min read + Your Authors

Members of Congress also have to buy their plans off the exchange. They are Gold plans that are partially subsidized.

That means I get to “choose” btwn 66 complex financial products.

This is absurd. No person should go without healthcare, &no one should go through this, either.

While I am VERY thankful to finally have health insurance, it is a moral outrage that it took me *getting elected to Congress* for that to happen.

The US needs to become an advanced society. That includes establishing healthcare as a right to all people.

And as someone who has now experienced many parts of the insurance spectrum (being uninsured, underinsured, and adequately insured) I don’t see how anyone can think our current healthcare system only needs a 10% improvement or a just few tweaks.

We need #MedicareForAll.

And once again, make sure to get insured if you can at  http://healthcare.gov 

Yes, it’s a pain. But it is worth it.

I know some folks are bristling at the fact that I am pointing that out, but we have to acknowledge the reality so we can move forward together.
