Make Health Care More Affordable - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Make Health Care More Affordable HOME ISSUES MAKE HEALTH CARE MORE AFFORDABLE Everyone in Michigan has a right to quality health care they can afford, and that means expanding coverage and lowering costs. We are reaching a critical point where the cost of health care plans – with skyrocketing premiums and deductibles – is too high for most families, seniors, and hardworking Michiganders. While I’m proud of the work I did to expand health care in Michigan, we have a long way to go. No one should have to choose between paying the rent or filling a prescription. As Governor, I’ll stand up to Washington when politicians try to take health coverage away from people, and I’ll work with anyone who wants to expand coverage, and lower costs of health care, starting with prescription drugs. Expanding Medicaid. As Senate Democratic Leader, I led negotiations to expand access to healthcare to more than 680,000 Michiganders through the state’s Medicaid expansion. Healthy Michigan added 30,000 jobs per year to our state and $2.3 billion to our economy. Protecting our care. We fought too hard to let Washington raise costs on seniors, families, and hardworking Michiganders. As Governor, I will defend our health care from these attacks, but we must keep fighting to address the cost of health care and lower the cost of prescription drugs until everyone in Michigan has access to an affordable health plan and can afford their treatment. Restoring funding to Planned Parenthood so that women and men in low income and rural areas have access to preventative care like screenings and checkups, contraception, and maternity care. Access to care in rural Michigan by enlisting technology, bringing people together, and harnessing the incredible talent of our state to find solutions to the challenges faced by rural hospitals and care providers. I’m ready to bring people together to find solutions so that every Michigander, no matter where they live, gets the care they need.

Whitmer Blasts Schuette Plan to Ban Abortion in Michigan - Gretchen Whitmer for Governor43%Skip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON JULY 17, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Whitmer Blasts Schuette Plan to Ban Abortion in Michigan LANSING — Former Senate Democratic Leader and Ingham County Prosecutor Gretchen Whitmer issued the following statement today blasting Bill Schuette’s plan to ban safe and legal access to abortion in Michigan if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court: “As a mom, I want my daughters to grow up in a state where women can make their own choices about their bodies. That’s why as governor, I am going to fight like hell to pass state laws that will protect women’s legal right to control their bodies and make their own decisions about whether and when to become a parent. The fate of Roe v. Wade and our constitutional rights are on the line in this election, and there is simply too much at stake for Michigan women to let Bill Schuette anywhere near the governor’s office.” ### Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Whitmer Joins Call for Investigation into PFAS Contamination Next Post   Whitmer Releases Plan to Protect Roe v.
