If I were president of the United States,

The first issue that I would address is affordable health care. I don't think it's fair that people aren't able to get their basic needs met so they have to do unsafe surgeries at their own homes which result in infections and even death. I would propose that everyone who can't afford health care get basic health care free in the United States.
