Libertarian candidate calls for free-market solutions in health care, bringing troops home

GREENVILLE, S.C.; October 24, 2020—  Following campaign events in Milwaukee on Friday, Libertarian presidential nominee Dr. Jo Jorgensen, whose name appears on the ballot in all 50 states (plus D.C.), is this weekend visiting four cities in Ohio and Kentucky, planning rallies with supporters, fundraisers, and media availability.

Dr. Jorgensen intends if elected to reduce the size and scope of the federal government, including dramatic spending cuts—without which, she pointed out, tax cuts are meaningless; creating a truly free market in in health care, spurring medical innovation and lower prices; and ending military involvement overseas and bringing troops home to protect American shores.

Dr. Jorgensen said it’s high time to bring our troops home, end military aid to foreign countries, and end economic sanctions or embargoes of non-military materials.

“When goods cross borders, soldiers don’t,” she explained. “When I am president, our military will be armed, trained, able, and ready to defend the life, liberty, and property of Americans against foreign aggressors. For the last 70 years, Democratic and Republican politicians have dragged us into war, after war—when there was no clear and present danger to America, causing millions of deaths and injuries. Let’s finally be at peace with the world”
