Enhancing Healthcare

No one should go bankrupt to pay for lifesaving or palliative care. My family was only able to afford critical care for my younger sister when she was with us because, in addition to my dad’s government employee health insurance, Olivia qualified for Medicaid. I want to ensure that every family has these same opportunities for their loved ones. As a member of Congress, I will work hard to protect and strengthen the ACA, increase the flexibility of Medicaid dollars so that states like Washington can continue expanding coverage,  bring down the out of pocket cost on medication, and invest in staffing critical healthcare positions and infrastructure so people have more than just theoretical access to the care they need. 

I have been a leader in Washington in expanding access to healthcare providers and ensuring that people have more than just theoretical access to essential healthcare including comprehensive reproductive healthcare and gender affirming care. 

I know firsthand just how devastating healthcare costs can be to working class families and no one should go bankrupt to pay for lifesaving or palliative care which is why I sponsored the legislation creating Washington’s Universal Healthcare Commission. 

In Congress, I will fight to ensure healthcare, including mental health care and reproductive healthcare, is affordable, accessible, and culturally-relevant for patients.
