Priorities and Issues
Healthcare costs are the number one reason for personal bankruptcy causing more than two-thirds of filings, and for that, South Carolina ranks 36th in the nation. South Carolina has not adopted Medicaid expansion - why? Republican leadership has blocked valuable healthcare benefits - why? This has caused the closure of medical services in rural areas of Lancaster and York. Our percentage of uninsured residents is too high, and when the uninsured get seriously ill or injured, it is the local hospital that carries that cost, making it harder for hospitals and clinics to stay in business. Finding a way to cover all South Carolina residents is a priority. I will defend and expand senior healthcare as best I can and work across the aisle in Columbia to gain support from both parties. We can do better, and when I am in office, we will do better!
