Raphael Warnock: Will focus on expanding quality, affordable health care

Reverend Warnock believes his impact does not stop at the church door and has been an advocate to expand health care coverage and to ensure hardworking Georgians can make a living wage. He will focus on fighting for quality, affordable health care, for the dignity of working people who are paid too little as our government works more for Wall Street, and to make sure every voice is heard.

Matt Lieberman: Everyone in US deserves affordable, quality healthcare

Everyone in the United States, the richest country on earth, deserves access to affordable, quality healthcare. That's why I support a public option. We have made great strides forward with the Affordable Care Act but have been challenged at every turn by conservative courts and a Congress more focused on obstruction than good governance. We can build on what we have to improve healthcare and lower costs for tens of millions of Americans.

Raphael Warnock: Expand Medicaid; keep children's health care

Reverend Warnock is proud of his legacy protesting in Governor Nathan Deal's office for Medicaid expansion, and in the rotunda of the U.S. Capitol fighting back against an immoral budget that would have cut funding for children's health care. Even before the coronavirus, our state's health care system was in a crisis compounded by the failure of Georgia's leaders to expand Medicaid. Today, 518,000 Georgians would be eligible for health care if our leaders took action.˙
