1. Bringing down costs for working families 2. Protecting the economic and reproductive rights of women 3. Expanding access to quality, affordable health care are major areas of focus for me.

For too many Americans, hard work doesn’t pay off like it used to. College is unaffordable, technical training is unavailable. Healthcare costs too much. Incomes aren’t keeping up with the costs of groceries and prescription drugs. We can do better.

That’s what I’ve been working on day-in, day-out since being elected. It’s disappointing that so many politicians seem content to sit back and do nothing but fight among themselves over petty politics.

Instead, I’ve prioritized listening to the concerns of the citizens I represent.
I voted to pass the Protecting Our Kids Act in the House to ban the sale of high-capacity magazines and bumpstocks because Congress cannot continue to sit on the sidelines as Americans are senselessly killed every day due to gun violence. I also support legislation to enact universal background checks on all gun purchases, so we can keep guns out of the hands of dangerous, irresponsible people and prevent more tragedies like the one at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX.
Climate change is an environmental issue, an economic issue, a national security issue and a civil rights issue. It will affect every aspect of our lives and our communities. That’s why I’ve made it a focus of mine to help curb carbon emissions and why I’m fighting to hold large corporations accountable for their pollution. It’s why I’m working to shore up resources for conservation and natural resources and why I’m pushing to expand our renewable energy arsenal and create clean energy jobs.
Tackling inflation and bringing down costs for Americans should be the focus of every elected representative in the country right now. I worked hard to pass the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act through the House to help working families get through this period. That legislation included two of my bills, which would bring down grocery prices and prices at the pump. I’m proud that they both passed with bipartisan support. I’m ready to work with anyone - Democrats & Republicans - to tackle this issue.
I hear from constituents every day about the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs, and I’ve taken action. The House passed my bill to cap the out-of-pocket cost of insulin at $35/month, and we’re working to get it through the Senate and signed into law. Congress must also take immediate steps to codify Roe v. Wade and fight back against the attack on women’s rights waged by the GOP. I helped pass the Women’s Health Protection Act to fight back against undue restrictions on abortion access.
I support efforts to make our campaign finance system more transparent, and I’ve been working since day one to advance efforts to get big money out of politics. I was proud to support H.R. 1 to upgrade our federal elections system to be safer, fairer, and more secure, and I am working to get the Senate to pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act so that the President can sign it into law to protect voters from harassment and discrimination.
