On January 25, 2018, Cory Booker spoke at the Families USA Health Action Conference in Washington, D.C. He is a strong advocate for affordable health care.
In 2017, Booker supported Bernie Sanders’s Medicare For All legislation, along with fellow senators Tammy Baldwin, Richard Blumenthal, Al Franken, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Martin Heinrich, Mazie Hirono, Patrick Leahy, Edward Markey, Jeff Merkley, Brian Schatz, Jeanne Shaheen, Tom Udall, Elizabeth Warren, and Sheldon Whitehouse.
“We cannot be a country that believes in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness if people do not have access to health care. Where is the liberty when you are chained to the fear that if one of your children gets sick you may not be able to afford to take care of them?” – Cory Booker
