North Alabama Values Affordable Health Care
North Alabamians want to know that no matter what happens in our unpredictable economy, we’ll be able to provide the security of reliable, affordable, quality health insurance for us and for our children without the risk of financial ruin. We want to be able to go to the doctor’s office without the fear of going broke. We want quality health care without the fear of skyrocketing insurance premiums. We shouldn’t have to choose between life saving medication and buying groceries for the week or paying the power bill. And we want policy makers to act in our best interests not the best interests of insurance and pharmaceutical executives.
I will support common sense legislation that provides security and peace of mind regarding health insurance for all North Alabamians. I will go toe to toe with career politicians who are beholden to special interests and who chose profits over people. I will oppose efforts to discriminate against people on the basis of pre-existing conditions and health needs. I will support legislation that prioritizes the health care needs of the men and women of our armed forces who bravely serve our country. I will support legislation that bolsters rural health care options, allowing people across North Alabama access to local, quality care. And I will fight to ensure that pharmaceutical profiteering is ended, and all people have affordable access to life-sustaining and life-saving medication.
