Moab Newspaper Covers Candidate Town Hall

From the Moab Times-Independent:

As the Democrat Party’s nominee, Dr. Allen has made healthcare reform the primary focus of her campaign. On her website, she states “Health care is indeed a right and most developed societies acknowledge this right . . . Substance abuse and addiction problems are draining our world of potential. We need effective programs to prevent and rehabilitate those who have been afflicted by this scourge.”

During the assembly, Dr. Allen expanded on her platform, saying she has a multi-faceted approach to healthcare legislation.

“I’m not just running to be your voice in Congress, I’m also running because I have 30 years of experience as a family doctor,” Allen said. “[It’s] experience we need as we debate how to fix our healthcare system. Here’s my treatment plan . . . we stop trying to repeal and replace Obamacare and start building a solution that covers every American. In the meantime, we prevent the insurance markets from collapsing by guaranteeing the subsidies. We [also] offer up for public auction for coverage, like Medicare or Medicaid, to greatly expand coverage for kids and adults . . . this would provide another option to ACA markets where only one or two are currently being offered.”
