BILL HAMMONS FOR UNITED STATES SENATE AND COLORADO
HEALTH CARE ANSWER: MEDICARE FOR ALL
(Candidate Bill Hammons Platform Position)
I support replacement of Obamacare with a simplified Medicare for All. We should drop the eligibility age from 65 to 0, keep copays very simple and very reasonable, eliminate the Employer portion of the Medicare Tax to encourage job growth, but remove the Social Security tax cap and use the increased pool of revenues to fund Medicare for All.
(Note that I do support the ColoradoCare Universal Health Care proposal, which will be on the statewide ballot as Amendment 69 this November.)
We should also roll the VA system into such a Medicare for All system so that we can provide the best possible care for our Veterans.
