Healthcare is one of the most personal issues we face. America's health system is broken and must be fixed. Now.
In Congress, Jess will work to...
Protect Medicare and Medicaid. Nearly 240,000 residents of our district rely on Medicaid and 145,000 are eligible for Medicare.
Ensure quality healthcare is available to everyone. Nearly 3,000 children in our district have no health coverage at all. This is unacceptable. Additionally, rural communities often have limited choices - and little competition - in their healthcare. Jessica will work toward real solutions to these pressing problems.
Increase healthcare transparency. Healthcare costs in the United States rise faster than nearly any other good or service in the world. In order to fix this problem, we first must understand the root causes. Jessica will introduce healthcare transparency legislation to ensure we have all the facts and can make informed decisions about one of the most intimate issues we face.
