As a child, I suffered from serious health issues and my parents struggled to afford the life- saving medical care I needed because we didn’t have insurance. No one should have to go through that experience or choose between putting food on the table or buying their prescription medication. I know the importance of expanding access to health insurance and strengthening the Affordable Care Act. I am committed to lowering the cost of prescription drugs by doing things like capping the cost of insulin and allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices. During the early days of the pandemic, I helped protect critical health care services and saved a rural hospital in Green Valley from closing its doors. In Congress, I will continue prioritizing fighting back against the COVID-19 pandemic through vaccination, testing and investing in adequate support for our health care workers.
