Elissa Slotkin is a third generation Michigander who grew up working on her family’s farm in Holly. She shares our Michigan values, fighting each and every day to make sure Washington works for UAW families.
WHY VOTE SLOTKIN FOR CONGRESS?
SHE’S FIGHTING TO LOWER PRESCRIPTION DRUG COSTS
Prescriptions drug costs have risen exponentially in recent years, leaving millions of Americans to make financial sacrifices or ration their medications to get by. Slotkin introduced the Real-Time Benefits Act to allow doctors and patients to find affordable prescriptions and co-sponsered the Lower Drug Cost Now Act, which would allow the government to negotiate drug prices directly with pharmaceutical companies. Both bills passed the House, but the Senate has failed to vote on either. Elissa Slotkin isn’t afraid to take on the pharmaceutical lobbyists because she knows patients should have to choose between life-saving prescriptions and putting food on the table.
SHE’S PROTECTING AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE
Elissa Slotkin recognizes the importance of defending the advances we’ve made on health care in the past decade. The Affordable Care Act eliminated lifetime coverage caps, ended discrimination based on pre-existing conditions and ensured that young people can stay on their parents’ coverage until age 26. Slotkin will continue to fight to protect these measures while also working to bring down premium and prescription drug costs for patients.
SHE’S TACKLING COVID-19 HEAD ON
Slotkin introduced bipartisan legislation to increase production of personal protective equipment and boost our national reserves, to ensure front line workers have the protection they need. She has also supported legislation to prevent financial hardship for workers and small businesses affected by the pandemic. In addition, Slotkin and her staff have held regular digital town halls to make sure 8th District residents have the information they need to keep their families safe.
Elissa Slotkin is a champion for Michigan’s working families. She’s hard at work on the issues that impact 8th District residents. That’s why the UAW endorses Elissa Slotkin for Congress.
