Health Care

Sen. Franken with Nurses

I believe that access to health care is a fundamental right. Working Minnesotans ought to be able to take their families to the doctor when needed. Minnesota has historically been a leader in health coverage and high quality health care, but more can be done. The health reform legislation Congress recently passed will go a long way toward making Minnesotans healthier.

That's why I'm proud to have supported the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law on March 23, 2010, by President Obama. These reforms will help Minnesotans stay healthier longer and make sure they get the care they need if they do become ill.

Factors outside of clinics and hospitals also affect our health. What we eat, how much we exercise, whether we smoke–all of these things have a significant impact on our health. As a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee I will work toward good health for Minnesotans in all aspects of their lives–in school, at work, at the clinic, and at home.
