Building a Stronger Economy
Small business is the lifeblood of the American economy. As a member of the Small Business Caucus, I continue to foster bipartisan relationships in order to cut bureaucratic red tape, level the playing field, and create economic conditions for business of all sizes to thrive and succeed. I also believe it is vital for our economy and the well being of American families to prioritize women’s economic security. That’s why I have fought for equal pay for equal work, expanding paid family and sick leave, and increasing access to affordable child care.

Working To Expand Access To Affordable Healthcare
As an emergency physician, I understand how critically important it is for every American to have access to quality, affordable healthcare. While some improvements have been made, our system remains imperfect and too expensive. I voted to prevent insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions and I am working to make out of pocket costs and prescription drugs more affordable while continuing to ensure that insurance companies are not allowed to discriminate against women. Lowering out-of-pocket costs is a top priority for me in Congress, in addition to addressing the opioid epidemic and reforming our system to ensure everyone has access to quality, affordable healthcare.
