Affordable Healthcare

In the wealthiest nation on earth, no one should lack access to quality, affordable healthcare or worry that getting sick could mean bankruptcy for their families. Congresswoman Trahan firmly believes that access to affordable healthcare is a basic human right, which is why she is acting to make sure people with preexisting conditions and underserved minorities, like women, get the resources and treatment they need.
