1. Protecting Affordable Healthcare, Social Security, & Medicare. These vital programs are under constant attack from the Trump Administration. I have been a vocal opponent of these cruel attacks, supporting efforts to protect and strengthen our healthcare system as well as Social Security & Medicare. 2. Climate change is an existential threat to our environment as well as public health, economy, & national security. Congress must never waiver on our commitment to combatting climate change.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has provided access to healthcare for millions who have previously gone without. The ACA protects people with pre-existing conditions, ensures women pay the same as men for their coverage, & ends lifetime caps. As a result more Americans have financial and health security than ever before.

However, we should continue to improve upon the ACA and progress towards universal coverage. This could be paid for by rolling back the expensive and unneeded Trump Tax plan.
1. Strengthen the Affordable Care Act 2. Stabilize and strengthen Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security
The John Lewis Voting Rights Act (JLVRA) responds to current conditions in voting today by restoring the full protections of the original, bipartisan Voting Rights Act of 1965. The JLVRA establishes a targeted process for reviewing voting changes nationwide, focused on measures that have historically been used to discriminate against voters.

I joined my colleagues in the House in passing the the JVLRA in December. It has since languished in the Senate. We must pass the JLVRA into law.
I joined my colleagues in the House in cosponsoring and passing the bipartisan George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to end racial profiling, increase transparency and accountability, and most importantly save lives.
