|I am committed to ensuring that EVERYONE has affordable, quality health care. As of April, there were over 100,000 people in the 7th district without health insurance. Today with the coronavirus outbreak and the economic crisis, there are probably many more. This is morally wrong and fiscally irresponsible. Additionally, the first bill I will co-sponsor as your representative is Congressman John Lewis' Voting Rights Advancement Act to address the voter suppression tactics we continue to experience in Georgia.|
