Americans pay 10x more for insulin than the rest of the world. The #InflationReductionAct would have capped insulin prices at $35. But today, Sens. Blackburn and Hagerty helped the GOP eliminate the cap, showing that they care more about Big Pharma than their own constituents.

Hey TN-5, THIS is the choice you face 👇🏽 Do you want a Rep like @AndyOgles who thinks we’re at “war” with each other? Or Rep @Campbell4TN who wants to find common ground and bring us together? Pretty easy choice if you ask us.

Andy Ogles wants a national ban on abortion. I want the government to get the hell out of your doctor’s visit.

As a doctor, I am deeply disturbed by the bill being considered by the Indiana legislature. I’ve practiced medicine for 12 years and follow a code of ethics, so I know that medicine is not about exceptions. Every person deserves to have equal access to the best medical care.

COVID & political culture wars continue to harm our children, classrooms, and teachers. Let’s remember that this school year. Let’s remember that at the ballot box, too. Public schools & teachers deserve so much more than we give them. washingtonpost.com/education…

“When people were beating up on teachers and just being real nasty about what we’re doing and what we’re not doing, I don’t think they were really thinking, ‘Who will teach my children?’ ”
Yep, everything is bigger in Texas—especially the inhumane treatment some pregnant women receive nowadays.Much like TX laws, the TN supermajority’s legislation is insensitive to the medical complexities physicians&patients face all to often. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcas…

In Tenn, the supermajority folks cut off their noses to spite their face—Except it’s the nose and welfare of Tennessee citizens to spite the face of the opposite party. Nobody wins with this level of partisan politics.
Tennessee Democrats tried to pass a 6-month grocery tax holiday: Republicans opposed Tennessee Democrats tried to pass a permanent repeal of grocery tax: Republicans opposed Every bit of this is performative

I do voice my concern to my local politicians, but I feel you are the only one fighting for people like me and you aren’t even my representative. Please keep fighting for me and the rest of us and more importantly, for our kids.”
