Like most Americans, Cort knows firsthand the importance of keeping healthcare affordable for everyone. After recently losing his mother to a battle with breast cancer, Cort understands how critical it is for all Americans to have access to quality healthcare, regardless of their economic circumstances. Families who are fighting illness shouldn’t have to fight to keep their coverage at the same time. That’s why Cort is committed to defending Medicare and Medicaid, strengthening the Affordable Care Act, and working towards new alternatives to lower premiums and increase coverage.
Cort knows that opioid addiction is one of the most pressing public health crises confronting our country today. Cort will tackle the opioid issue by working to expand access to effective and affordable treatment options instead of simply throwing addicts in jail. Addiction is an illness, and Cort believes that we need a public health answer to this public health problem.
Cort recognizes that the choices we make about our healthcare are deeply personal and private. That’s why he will be unwavering in his support and defense of the constitutional right of all women to make their own healthcare decisions.
