Healthcare

Healthcare is an issue that impacts us all. Being able to afford care and prescription drugs, impacts children and seniors. Having the peace of mind of knowing that you can’t be denied care because of a pre-existing condition impacts families and people throughout our communities. Fighting for affordable health care is the number one priority I hear across Burlington and Ocean Counties. It’s why I’ve worked to introduce bills that give seniors the help they need to afford their prescription drugs and empower states to take action to lower health care costs. It’s also why I’ve worked with my colleagues to support bills that would allow Medicare to use its negotiating power to lower the costs of lifesaving drugs and increase support for people suffering from cancer and mental health.

Check out what I’m doing to make our health care more affordable and more accessible:
