My Health Care Pledge

As a member of Congress, I would pledge to:

1. Continue to defend the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The 2010 health care law has insured 20 million additional Americans, eliminated lifetime limits and ended pre-existing condition clauses.

2. Strengthen the ACA and the health care system with a Medicare/Medicaid buy in for all plan. Anybody could select Medicare or Medicaid as their health insurance company.

3. Work towards the ultimate goal of Medicare for all and universal coverage. Unlike Fortenberry, I believe that access to decent, affordable health care is a right — and not a privilege.

I’m a trial lawyer, a Democratic activist and a sports fan.
