North Carolinians are known for looking out for one another. But looking out for one another shouldn’t mean donating to our neighbor’s healthcare bill on GoFundMe because they don’t have coverage.
Current leadership sent a clear message to the state’s citizens when they chose not to improve access to healthcare: you don’t matter, partisan politics do. In fact, Steven’s opponent is openly proud of the fact that he rejected federal aid for healthcare, a decision that ended up costing 500,000 people in North Carolina their health insurance - over 17,000 of those in Guilford County . Steven’s father has been practicing medicine in Guilford for almost three decades, and he has seen the impact of many of his patients losing their healthcare – and many of his colleagues working more hours for less money.
With opioid deaths at an all-time high, with our state’s economy on the line, with thousands of people living with the fear of being stranded with unpayable medical bills, it’s time for us to start taking care of one another again -- in the right way. Steven will fight for access to healthcare for more North Carolinians. Not because of his political beliefs, but because it’s the right thing to do.
