I strongly believe healthcare is a right, not a privilege. I support a universal Medicare-for-All plan and will defend core principles in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) including preserving access and coverage for pre-existing conditions, mental health, and women's health. I have been a strong proponent of ensuring 5th District residents have access to federal funding through the Children's Health Insurance Plan (CHIP). We must protect our most vulnerable from financial devastation by medical bills.
