Honey - Rio Grande County

“Every time they talk about repeal of [the Affordable Care Act], every time they talk about preexisting conditions, we feel like we’re set back, like the carpet is going to be pulled out from under us. We need someone who’s going to make this right.”
— Honey, Rio Grande County

Honey’s daughter has a rare and life-threatening condition that, at the time of her birth, was the only case in Colorado. Treatment was expensive, and put more financial pressure on Honey and her husband than they could bear. On account of the Affordable Care Act, her daughter got the life-saving medicine she needed. “Everything was different, our whole life was different,” Honey says. Now, Attorney General Sessions and the federal government are refusing the defend and enforce the Affordable Care Act, threatening Honey’s daughter access to the kind of affordable, life-saving medicine she needs.

As Attorney General, I will protect the right to healthcare for our children and families, ensure the Affordable Care Act is defended and enforced, and will fight for affordable health care across our state. Learn more about how I will fight for affordable and accessible healthcare.
