Jaime Herrera Beutler doesn’t only talk about lowering the cost of prescription drugs, she’s actually been taking action to do it. 

Earlier this year, she crossed party lines to vote for a bill that would cut the cost of prescription drugs. As a result, the pharmaceutical industry spends thousands of dollars running attack ads against her. 

You know you’re effective at lowering prescription drug costs if the pharmaceutical industry comes after you. If you want medications to cost less, vote for Jaime, because she has a proven record of working to make them more affordable for all of us. She is just the type of representative we want working for us in Washington. She makes decisions based on what is right for her constituents, not what the party bosses dictate.

According to the Columbian newspaper, Jaime Herrera Beutler (JHB) votes the way party bosses want her to vote at least 70-80% of the time. And JHB has stated she is going to vote for Trump. You like the fact that she voted yes on a bill submitted by the Democrats in the House to lower drug prices. Good for her on that vote. But then why has she voted 80 times to overturn the Affordable Care Act (with no plan to replace it) when it has cut in half the uninsured rate in Lewis County alone! At this time, the Trump Administration and 18 Republican led states will argue on Nov 10th to repeal the Affordable Care Act without anything to replace it. If they are successful, around 23 million Americans will lose healthcare coverage which includes prescription drug plans. Where is JHB’s and the Republican’s plan to replace these Americans’ healthcare coverage. Why not vote for Carolyn Long who will work hard to make sure everyone has access to good, affordable health care and she won’t have to fight the party bosses to accomplish that because that is what the Democrats are working toward!
