There's no denying it; our healthcare system cannot handle a serious medical crisis like COVID-19. Yet even before this pandemic, tens of thousands of Americans died from preventable illnesses every year. We need a complete industry overhaul, one that takes healthcare out of the hands of wealthy CEOs and puts front-line workers in charge of delivering care. Everyone deserves healthcare, and Essential Workers can deliver it.
Our healthcare system was totally unprepared for Coronavirus; the rich can afford testing, but real working class people all over the country are getting sick and dying. This could be prevented. Any political party that claims to fight for workers should advocate for healthcare as a right.
