Jon is working to increase access and affordability to health care across Montana.
Protecting Medicare for seniors, and Medicaid for working families is critical to Montana’s future.
Folks have paid into Medicare their whole lives, and they shouldn’t have the rug pulled out from under them by Washington politicians. That's why Jon will protect Medicare from being privatized or turned into a voucher system.
Jon also wants to make sure that regardless of whether folks get hurt in the oil fields of the Bakken, skiing near Yellowstone, or farming in Fort Benton, they have affordable health care options nearby.
The current health care system is not perfect, but it has helped rural hospitals and community health centers stay afloat. It has provided working families with coverage for the first time. And it has stopped big insurance companies from denying folks coverage because of a pre-existing condition like diabetes, high blood pressure, or asthma.
Jon knows that Montana families are facing rising premiums and he is willing to work with anyone to lower the cost of health care.
