As governor of Montana, Bullock promoted his record of expanding access to Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act and freezing tuition at public colleges, all accomplished by working with a Republican-led legislature.
At the Democratic debate, Bullock pushed for expanding access to healthcare without taking away private health insurance. “I’m not going to support any plan that rips away quality health care for individuals... It used to be Republicans who wanted to repeal and replace — now many Democrats do as well.”
Bullock does not support providing healthcare for undocumented immigrants, saying, “I would work on fixing that and immigration reform rather than just throwing health insurance for everybody that's undocumented in this country.”

As governor, Bullock signed a letter to Congress to protect the 800,000 Dreamers, young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, from deportation.
Currently governor of Montana, Bullock announced his bid for president in May with a platform that includes raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
