"I'm with her" has become a rally cry for Clinton supporters, and Beyonce's song, "Run the World? (Girls)" could become more relevant than ever. But there are plenty of reasons why millennial women are voting for Clinton other the fact that they want to see someone break the highest glass ceiling in America: millennials voting for Hillary Clinton can get behind her progressive policies. From building on the Affordable Care Act to make health care even more affordable and accessible, to reforming gun laws and defending LGBT rights, her substantial experience as not only a senator but a First Lady and Secretary of State assures young female voters that they're in capable hands and will see the change they're looking for. So vote up the top reasons why you're with her, and check out her take on all the issues for more information.
She wants health care to be affordable for all.
Clinton plans to do this by defending the Affordable Care Act, building on it and expanding it to make health care affordable for more Americans. Specifically, she wants to reduce the cost of purchasing health insurance on Affordable Care Act exchanges and significantly lower the coast of prescription drugs and out-of-pocket costs like co-pays and deductibles.Read her health care plan of action here.
She wants women to have access to reproductive health care.
She has already championed access to emergency contraception and voted in favor of strengthening a woman’s right to make her own health decisions.
Clinton wants to continue defending Planned Parenthood, and will work to ensure that all women have access to preventive care, affordable contraception, and safe, legal abortion.
She wants to change the game when it comes to education.
"As president, I'll work to ensure every child—from every ZIP code—has access to a world-class education, including access to high-quality preschool. We need to strike the right balance on testing—with fewer, fairer and better tests for elementary and secondary school students. And we must support teachers with the training and resources they need."Read her complete plan here.
She really seems like she can get things done.
Clinton's first-hand experience in the world of politics (she served as a senator, First Lady, and Secretary of State) and more pragmatic approach to solving issues has not gone unnoticed by voters.
In a TIME article on Clinton: Scott Arnes - a 28 year old who campaigned for Clinton in South Dakota in 2008 - said, “I’m a diehard progressive liberal. Do I wish we could have Medicare-for-all? Of course. But I understand that it’s not realistic and that won’t happen in our modern political climate. I think Hillary’s approaches to universal healthcare are far more achievable and that’s why I support her.”
