Health care is a right, not a privilege — but sadly, for too many Iowans, health care is too expensive and not accessible. No Iowan should lose their health care coverage because of a pre-existing health condition, and we should be working to expand access and make health care more affordable across the state and the country. Theresa supports access to quality, affordable health care — no matter who you are or where you live.
That means strengthening our existing laws like the Affordable Care Act, creating a public health insurance option for Iowans to buy into, and working to bring down the cost of co-pays, prescription drugs, and health care as a whole. But in Washington, big money from insurance and pharmaceutical corporate PACs influence policy — meaning common sense solutions, like reducing the cost of prescription drug prices, are stalling in Congress.
Theresa is committed to strengthening and protecting rural hospitals and health care options in underserved rural areas. Theresa isn’t taking money from corporate PACs like those in the health care or pharmaceutical industry, so she is ready to fight for what’s best for Iowans.
