Omari Hardy is fighting to:
- Guarantee quality healthcare to every American
- Lower prescription drug prices
Healthcare is a human right, not a privilege. That means everyone should have equal access to quality healthcare, and no one should have a better chance of surviving an illness, or getting treatment for a chronic condition, based on how much money they have. Yet, in America – the 6th richest country in the world – nearly 30 million people lack health coverage and nearly 20,000 people die each year because of it. It’s a moral abomination, a result of our broken, for-profit healthcare system. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Omari Hardy is running for Congress because he believes in healthcare as a human right. No one’s access to care should depend on a corporation’s ability to profit off of it. Omari will work to pass Medicare For All and stop insurance companies from profiteering off of our health. He will also support President Joe Biden’s proposal to allow the federal government to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies on the price of prescription drugs for Medicare patients.
