In Congress, I will fight to move the United States toward a system of universal, affordable, and quality health care. I will always oppose the Trump plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act and will instead build from its improvements of our current system. We must expand Medicaid, empower Medicare to better negotiate prescription drug prices and other medical services, and adopt a public option on the exchanges.
I will always support the Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which provides healthcare to millions of children across the United States. It’s an embarrassment that Congress can’t put petty partisan disputes aside long enough to renew this proven, life-saving program. As the father of a one year old, I know kids get sick. Let’s make sure all children get the healthcare they need.
