Cindy Axne was born and raised in Iowa. As a mom, community activist and small business owner, Cindy has spent her life fighting for working families. She shares the values and tenacity UAW members bring to the job each day.
WHY VOTE AXNE FOR CONGRESS?
SHE’S PROTECTING SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE
When the current administration in Washington tried to privatize and cut budgets to Social Security and Medicare, Cindy fought back. She co-sponsored bills that strengthened Medicare and protected multiemployer pension plans. She’s seen firsthand how many seniors rely on the benefits they were promised, and is dedicated to passing legislation that ensures seniors can retire with dignity.
SHE’S DEDICATED TO EXPANDING QUALITY HEALTH CARE TO ALL
After experiencing the effects of unaffordable health care plans as a small business owner, Cindy has dedicated her time in Congress to expanding access to quality health care. As a member of the Affordable and Accessible Health Care Task Force, Cindy worked across the aisle to fight for health care reform. She advocated to reduce the cost of prescription drugs, protect individuals with pre-existing conditions, and fought to offer a public health care option, like Medicare, for all.
SHE’S FIGHTING FOR IOWANS DURING COVID-19
Cindy Axne has fought for Iowans during the COVID-19 pandemic. She helped get millions of dollars of CARES Act grants and PPP funding to small businesses gravely impacted by the economic effects of the disease. She voted to allocate tens of millions of dollars in funding to Iowa hospitals, health centers, and testing facilities to ensure they had the resources they needed to adequately care for Iowans and control outbreaks. She also launched a COVID-19 response tracker to help ensure Iowa emergency funds were being allocated efficiently.
Cindy Axne has a track record of fighting for working families in Iowa. She’s not afraid to stand up to protect residents of the 3rd District. That’s why the UAW endorses Cindy Axne for Congress.
