The American healthcare system features some of the world’s greatest advancements in technology and pharmaceutical research, but for too many the system is broken. Nobody should have to rely on charity or a kickstarter for cancer treatment. No parent should have to make the choice of putting food on the table or paying for a prescription for their child.
In Congress, I’ll work to find common-sense solutions to bring down the costs of healthcare and lower the cost of prescription drugs. I support policies that will ban insurance companies from raising rates on people when they get sick, denying people coverage for having a pre-existing condition or dropping them when they get sick. I will work tirelessly to prevent insurance companies from increasing premiums and deductibles while reducing coverage. I’ll fight for paid family and medical leave, so when someone is sick, they stay home and keep us all safe. I’ll vote to cap the cost of critical prescription drugs and insulin, and I will defend the Affordable Care Act and work every day to expand on it.
