The Democratic Candidates on Healthcare

  • Share

About half of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates ... share similar views on key health care issues.

Democrats have typically favored increasing federal government involvement to help contain rising drug prices for consumers and have called for the federal insurance program Medicare to directly negotiate drug prices. Democratic presidential candidates support this view along with revocation of branded drug patents to allow for more production of cheaper generic medications.

Another shared platform priority is aligning U.S. drug prices to prices paid in other nations.
