Excerpt from Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein's platform:
•Establish an improved “Medicare for All” single-payer public health program to provide everyone with quality health care, at huge savings by eliminating the $400 billion annually spent on the paperwork and bureaucracy of health insurance. No co-pays, premiums or deductibles. Access to all health care services, including mental health, dental, and vision. Include everyone, period. No restrictions based on pre-existing illness, employment, immigration status, age, or any other category.
•Eliminate the cancer of health insurance, which adds costs while reducing access to health care.
•End overcharging for prescription drugs by using bulk purchasing negotiations.
•Eliminate health disparities in communities of color and low-income communities. Ensure easy access to health care in communities of color, including community health centers.
•Allow full access to contraceptive and reproductive care.
•Expand women's access to "morning after" contraception by lifting the Obama Administration's ban.
