Rising healthcare costs is a cause for bankruptcy for many American families. Our current Representative Anna Eshoo — in her 28th year in office — has been acting against the interests of hard working American families by supporting Big Pharma and not the people. Here are the facts, perspectives that includes articles from San Jose Mercury News and San Francisco Chronicle
“Anna Eshoo’s record on drug prices is terrible, and the reason why is obvious. She’s taken enormous sums of money from drug corporations, and she does their bidding in Washington.”
— David Mitchell, founder of Patients for Affordable Drugs
A scathing report by the Federal Trade Commission in June said no added protection, much less 12 years, was warranted and warned that the Eshoo legislation would ensure sky-high drug prices and stifle innovation on the most promising frontier of medical research. — from an article in the San Francisco Chronicle
“Over her 25-year career, Eshoo’s campaigns have pocketed more than $1.5 million from employees of pharmaceutical firms and other health care companies. In Congress, Eshoo has consistently voted in favor of the industry.”

I believe we all deserve better. We need a representative who will look out for us. That is why I am running for US Representative from District 18.
I want you to know that I have pledged never to accept any PAC money or Special Interest Group money, including from Big Pharma — the only Democrat in this race to do so.
As your congressman, I will fight for your interests, not special interests.
I humbly ask you to stand with our campaign for change.
Can I count on your vote?
