One topic on which presidential candidates will voice their stances and gain followers (or lose them) is health care. Personal and volatile issues such as vaccinations, women's health and the Affordable Care Act are being reviewed, and candidates are taking a stand on what they believe to be best for the country. Voters will rally behind candidates who share their own personal opinions on any given topic, and health issues are one of the top priorities for many individuals and families.
With many potential candidates still in the running, the amount of information regarding any topic is overwhelming. In this article, we'll offer some basics on many of the current candidates’ health care platforms in one space so you can access the facts without reading through dozens of articles.
