    Medicare & Medicaid represent a foundational promise to the American people: you deserve to live with dignity. The would see America go back on that promise – and that’s why I’m fighting to make sure it doesn’t take effect.

    In their failed attempt to pass two anti-choice, anti-women bills, Senate Republicans have once again attacked the freedom of women to make their own health decisions in consultation with their families, their physicians & their faith.

    The House passed the Now Act to negotiate lower Rx prices for America's seniors & families – but Leader McConnell still refuses to take action. How many people have to watch their loved ones go without necessary medications before the Senate will vote on ?

    Our state and local governments need serious funding to be ready to respond effectively to any outbreak in the U.S. The President should not be raiding money that Congress has appropriated for other life-or-death public health priorities.

    The President’s most recent budget called for slashing funding for the Centers for Disease Control, which is on the frontlines of this emergency. And now, he is compounding our vulnerabilities by seeking to ransack funds still needed to keep Ebola in check.

    Americans need a coordinated, fully-funded, whole-of-government response to keep them and their loved ones safe. The President’s request for coronavirus response funding is long overdue and completely inadequate to the scale of this emergency.

    President Trump’s economic priorities are loud and clear in the proposal: cut critical programs like Medicare, Medicaid & Social Security and expand tax cuts for the very wealthy, proving he only serves as President for the powerful.
