I received this email from Lisa Brown
For the first time in 20 years, Congress missed the deadline to reauthorize the enormously successful Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). This puts four million kids at risk of losing their coverage, including as many as 17,500 children here in Washington state.
Time is running out to assist Dreamers, students who could be kicked out of colleges and universities in Eastern Washington if Congress fails to act. Women’s healthcare is being threatened with Republican leadership in Congress standing silently by as the current administration changes the rules on women’s access to contraception and other medical services. Inaction on these issues is what motivates me to run for Congress.
What is Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers up to while all of this is going on? She’s launching a PR campaign to promote the Republican tax plan. She will personally lead the national “tax tour”, spending time in other states like Virginia, Michigan, and North Carolina. I believe true leadership is about addressing what matters most to the people you represent.
I’m running to represent Washington’s 5th District because I believe we need new leadership in Congress. If you agree, I hope you’ll make a contribution today. The only way I can win in 2018 is with your generous support.
All the best, Lisa Brown
