I would end the policies that promote inequality, including but not limited to:

I would end the drug war, which has so affected minority communities.

I would end qualified immunity and civil asset forfeiture.

I would put an end to monetary inflation. The continual "easing" or "printing" of money is the greatest social justice that no one hardly mentions. It is the constant devaluation of our dollars, and the money we make at work, as the government creates more money, which usually goes to politically connected corporations and friends.

This will offer the best of both worlds: working to standardize care as well as dramatically lowering prices for everyone. 

We also need to lower demand for healthcare procedures. Over half of Americans suffer preventable diseases, and it is largely a result of bad diet
