Kurt Schrader has a dubious working relationship with his fellow Democrats on issues related to healthcare.
He has been a co-sponsor on reducing regulatory government involvement on issues related to our health eliminating safeguards already in place. When the issue is related to health perils such as lead poisoning or cancer-causing chemicals, Schrader sides with industry and not with the health and well-being of his constituents in Oregon’s District 5.
As a senior and cancer survivor I am angry that he did not support negotiating lower drug prices for Medicare.
We have an alternative in Jamie McLeod-Skinner who is one of us. As our representative she will make sure our voices are heard and not the ones from Corporate PACS, such as big pharma.
Jamie is a bridge-builder and she is a longtime advocate of healthcare for all.
Let’s elect someone who actually has our interests at heart.
