Healthcare and Medicare

Archie will stand up for families and defend healthcare and Medicare from Washington’s attempts to weaken them. Archie believes that if you have paid into Social Security and Medicare, you have earned it -- it should never be taken away from you. He opposed the Republican bill to replace the Affordable Care Act, which would have raised premiums on older Americans and weakened Medicare, and has called on all candidates in the race to do the same.

Archie knows the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs must be addressed. Specifically, he believes the US should allow residents to import cheaper drugs from other countries, like Canada (subject to safety controls), and that the government should negotiate with pharmaceutical companies to lower the costs for consumers.
