HEALTHCARE IS A HUMAN RIGHT
Join us to fight for all Granite Staters!
Healthcare costs are skyrocketing across the country (in NH, the average family premium is $17,024!) and a lack of access (in NH, 11% of the population remains uninsured) continues to drive individuals, families, and businesses to the breaking point.
We are committed to fighting for health care as a human right that should be guaranteed by our government. We rise up for a health care system that supports healthy people and communities, not the profits of drug and insurance corporations. And we fight for a health care system that guarantees care for all; at the time we need it, regardless of where we live or who we are.
Principles we are working to advance:
- Health care is a human right
- Public (publicly held and run and democratically accountable)
- For health, not profit
- Simple, comprehensive, available to all at no cost
- Racial, gender, ability, and regional equity
- Reproductive health is health care
- Caring for the people who care for us (rights of health care workers)
- Health care institutions run by and for our communities
Over this past legislative session, Rights and Democracy NH worked to ensure that Medicaid Expansion was renewed. We also lifted up how the proposed (and, unfortunately, passed) work requirements could harm people who need healthcare now.
