As a Registered Nurse in Michigan, who has 10+ years experience not only in bedside nursing, but hospital administration, community and public health, I know that the only way we can help the people of Michigan heal, both physically and financially, is to offer comprehensive, affordable healthcare. If elected, I will introduce the formation of a Michigan Public Option, where the people of Michigan will be allowed to buy into a state run health insurance program. One that is truly affordable, covers all of the essential health benefits patients need, and does not put barriers to healthcare with astronomical deductibles, co-insurance or costly co-pays. We may not be able to always control what happens in D.C., but I will make sure the people of Michigan have the right to invest in ourselves, our health, our economy and our future.
I am in the process of exploring running for the Michigan State Senate in order to bring this idea into reality. My opponents, who are in the pockets of the health insurance lobby, will no doubt raise tens of thousands of dollars in order to stop me. So in my exploration, I need to see how much of a desire there is for this kind of healthcare option in Michigan, and see how much I might be able to raise in order to fight this uphill battle. Please consider pledging to my campaign, and let's enshrine healthcare as a human right in Michigan!
