Gillum today: "Healthcare is a right."

https://twitter.com/andrewgillum/status/1035239841959739399?s=21

Full stop.

No qualifications. No equivocations.

Not "access to private health insurance is a right." Not "health insurance coverage is a right."

More Democrats like Andrew Gillum, please.

"I've had to police this over and over and over again, Robinson said with frustration during the hearing in Kansas City, Kan."
