It’s amazing how little healthcare experience the people who write our healthcare policies have. I bring 12 years of hands-on experience to the table – from the bedside to the boardroom, from private industry to government. So let me put it simply. Our current system is broken because it’s based on profit. It turns health into a commodity and holds people hostage to insurance companies. And I want to change that.
When it comes to healthcare, we all pretty much want the same thing: to know that if we need help we’ll get it. Thing is these days though, too many people see government as a threat to healthcare - either making it too expensive or taking away what we already have. That’s just wrong. Government is meant to protect us. All of us. And I believe it can.
I believe healthcare will work better if it’s based on people, not profit. I believe it’s time we had a real alternative to the market-based system. I believe the people of Michigan should have the right to invest in themselves and their neighbors. That’s why I support a plan for purchasing healthcare through a state-run public option.
Universal healthcare is the ultimate goal for any civilized society. Using #MIPublicHealth to ensure anyone who needs us will be the fastest way to get us to that goal, without having to wait for the slow, overly politicized changes that happen at the Federal level. This is a realistic program that can be fully realized during my first term in the State Senate.

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of cowering in fear of what DC is going to do to us in regards to our ability to access vital healthcare.
We must act!
It's time we take our lives into our own hands.
It's time for a Michigan Public Option. #MIPublicOption
While I fully support a universal single payer system in the US, I also know this is very far away, and outside of our control right here and now.
As a nurse, I believe in the concept of triage: we deal with the worst, most life threatening issues first with the fastest way to stabilize the situation.
That best option right now for the people in Michigan is a public option for healthcare coverage.
The people of Michigan should have the right to invest in themselves and their neighbors and #OptIn to affordable, comprehensive, FULL COVERAGE healthcare in Michigan.
I want to go to Lansing to make this happen.
This is why I'm running for Michigan State Senate. #VotePulver
