If a society isn't healthy, it can't prosper.
When you go to the hospital, you should be concerned with receiving the best care possible. You shouldn't have to worry that you'll put yourself into debt.
Unfortunately, that's the case for many Americans. Without a universal health care system, thousands of people can be put at risk for death as they can not afford the skyrocketing expenses of seeking treatment.
Healthcare is a human right. If Skyler is elected, he will sign onto the New York Health Act, and make sure no one in New York needs to chose between going broke and dying.
