DR. ROB’S PLAN FOR HEALTHCARE
As an ER doctor, Dr. Rob Davidson listens and solves problems everyday. He’s running for Congress to fix our broken health care system. As an ER doctor who cares for thousands of patients a year, Dr. Rob knows we all need quality, affordable health care, including coverage for pre-existing conditions. That’s why he supports Medicare for All to provide security and peace of mind to families across Michigan, so people can get care without being financially burdened. Dr. Rob believes these should be our goals:
- Guaranteeing healthcare for all Americans, including patients with preexisting conditions;
- Eliminating high copays and large out-of-pocket prescription drugs costs;
- Allowing patients to see healthcare providers anywhere in the country since they will be participating in healthcare-for-all;
- Streamlining patient access and service delivery because of increased efficiencies, reducing paperwork for providers and patients, and reducing wait times for services.
Recent studies, including one from the Koch-brothers-funded Mercatus Center, conclude that Medicare for All will save the country between $2 trillion and $8 trillion over 10 years. The average American family already spends $10,000 a year on healthcare. More than 24 million people, including many in our district, are at risk of losing their healthcare because of reckless cuts that Congressman Huizenga supports.
IN WEST MICHIGAN, WE DON’T TURN OUR BACK WHEN OUR NEIGHBORS NEED HELP
NO CORPORATE PAC MONEY PLEDGE
Why would a bank with no presence in our district give money to a member of Congress other than to buy influence and impact their vote? Dr. Rob decided to run for the 2nd Congressional district against Rep. Bill Huizenga because Huizenga has stopped listening to his constituents. He’s taken campaign money from Big Banks, drug makers and the insurance industry, and then votes their way, not ours. By refusing to take corporate PAC money, Dr. Rob will fight for a system that works for everyone – not just the wealthy and powerful.
BORN AND RAISED IN MICHIGAN
FIGHTING FOR EDUCATION, CLEAN WATER, AND GOOD PAYING JOBS
As a trustee at his local school board, Dr. Rob strongly believes that every child deserves access to quality free public education. Dr. Rob’s children go to public schools, and he will work for excellent public schools that can benefit all students. He supports making college and continuing education affordable for all so our children have the opportunity to succeed.
Dr. Rob believes our water defines us in the Great Lakes state, and supports holding corporate polluters accountable by making them pay for cleanups when they contaminate our water, air and land, efforts to ensure Michigan families have safe, clean drinking water and robust protections against invasive species, including ballast water protections and Asian carp prevention.
Dr. Rob understands that many people in our community work hard, yet struggle from paycheck to paycheck just to make ends meet. Many families are a broken wrist or a busted tire away from falling behind.
