Health care is a right, not a privilege. We fully believe that a society is not judged on how it treats its most successful citizens, but how it treats its least fortunate. We cannot expect to protect our values if we repeal the ACA, stripping coverage from over 20 million Americans.
In CA-25 over 44,000 constituents would lose their health coverage in the case that the ACA is repealed. We will oppose any efforts to repeal this life-saving legislation and will fight to protect it.
We will also stand by our seniors, who have worked so hard and deserve to receive their benefits. Social Security and Medicare are necessary pieces of healthcare law which help millions of seniors around the nation. We will oppose any efforts to voucher, privatize, or otherwise dismantle these benefits.
