She has also dedicated herself to fighting to regrow Ohio’s economy after the pandemic, especially focusing on the small businesses that have been gravely impacted.

SHE’S TACKLING HEALTH CARE REFORM
Alaina Shearer has witnessed firsthand the negative impacts of unaffordable health insurance. She is dedicated to fighting to stabilize and expand upon the Affordable Care Act, so that all Americans have access to the health care they deserve. She will fight to ensure individuals with preexisting conditions aren’t discriminated against, and that everyone can buy into a public plan if they choose. She will also work to create an income-based cap on out of pocket medical costs, like prescriptions, to ensure working families aren’t at risk of going bankrupt due to unaffordable care.
SHE’S ADVOCATING FOR WORKERS RIGHTS AND UNIONS
Alaina believes that labor unions are the backbone of America, and is dedicated to supporting them. She will fight to ensure workers are protected as they collectively bargain for fairer working conditions, benefits, and higher wages.
