To the Editor:
We face perhaps more critical issues as a community and nation than in any previous election.
I’m writing about reelecting Johana Hayes because of her views on health care, which has been under attack by the GOP for years. Health care cuts across urban and rural, gender and region. Covid-19 intensely focused our attention on the issue. I receive Rep. Hayes’ newsletter and follow her Twitter feed, so I know she feels strongly about affordable health care. I know something about the issue, because I managed health benefits communications for a major corporation for several years. She is a co-sponsor of Medicare for All because she believes it will provide the most affordable, equitable health care to all Americans. But she also supports plans that make incremental improvements toward that goal.
Remember, your vote can make a difference.
