I will protect Medicare. The new tax law will add trillions to the debt, while giving huge tax cuts to the richest one percent, this hurts the most vulnerable. All Americans need an elected official that will put people before party. The only people who win on the plan we have now are big pharmaceutical businesses and large insurance companies. Americans pay the highest prices for medicines in the world. I will repeal laws that forbid Medicare from negotiating prices with large drug companies. In 2012 the pharmaceutical industry spent 306 MILLION on lobbying Congress. I will stand up for the voters and repeal this law.
No family should have to decide if they want medicine or food on the table.
