Affordable Health Care
“The first wealth is health.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
The costs of health care continue to skyrocket. As a result, many Utahns have been unable to afford health care essential for their well-being. Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) made great strides in attempting to bridge some of the structural problems behind health care, tens of thousands of our neighbors are still without health insurance or are struggling to pay premiums. We now face “repeal and replace” of the ACA, which comes with even more uncertainty. We at Better Utah will continue to stand with our allies in the health care community until all Utahns, especially the poor and needy among us, have access to affordable healthcare.
