Alexandra’s Policy Platform
Medicare for All. Alexandra believes healthcare is a human right. In Congress, Alexandra will vote in favor of a single-payer, high quality, national health insurance program and support the passing of Medicare for All. Alexandra will dismantle the current healthcare industry standard, removing networks, premiums, copays, and deductibles. She will fight to cancel all medical debt and to expand every person’s access to consistent medical care. Medicare should be expanded to cover mental health; dental, vision, home or community-based, and long-term care; reproductive care; all safe and comprehensive cancer treatments; and prescription drugs.
Stop Big Pharma. Alexandra will work to prevent the pharmaceutical industry from overcharging the American people for necessary medicine through an annual prescription drug budget cap. She will support the allowance of Medicare to negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies and the importation of low-cost drug options from other countries.
