Why the national elections matter.

Recently Representative Nancy Pelosi visited Milwaukee and we were energized by her plea for a unified voice this fall as we consider our choices for who will represent us in Washington.
 
There are many issues we all care about and work to influence every day - but there are three health care issues that could affect the lives of every person in this country, especially seniors, that we think you must know.

The escalating unchecked rise in the cost of prescription drugs.
This Congress has done nothing to help citizens who are devastated by the unnecessary and profit motivated drug prices inflicted on us by the pharmaceutical industries. If anything, the companies have gotten bolder in their greed and face no consequences for their actions. We must elect a Congress who will use the economic and moral leverage of the Federal Government to negotiate lower drug prices for all of us.
The threats to destroy Medicare in the name of entitlement reform.

Currently, due to the provisions of the Affordable Care Act,
insurance companies must cover pre-existing conditions.
