Gabbard’s position on healthcare includes support for Medicare for All and allowing the government to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies to lower drug prices.
At the Democratic debate, Gabbard laid out her views on immigration saying, “We will have to stop separating children from their parents, make it so that it's easier for people to seek asylum in this country, make sure that we are securing our borders and making it so that people are able to use our legal immigration system by reforming those laws."
“Every single one of us is paying the price for these wars,” Gabbard said. “And we see this every time we are told by politicians that there is just not enough money...to make sure that mothers and fathers and sons and daughters...have clean water to drink. There’s just not enough money to make sure that we have safe roads and bridges to drive on.”
Gabbard has thrown her support behind achieving universal healthcare through Medicare for All, but doesn’t want to eliminate private insurance altogether. She also wants to eliminate tuition at 4 year universities and make community college free for all students.
Gabbard joined with 200 fellow members of Congress to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour by 2024.
