My family, my faith, my decision
I remember when I landed my first job that offered health insurance. I was thrilled about the job – and that I would finally have access to more affordable birth control.

Keeping our commitment to seniors on Medicare
The Republican plan ends traditional Medicare’s guarantee of a specific set of health benefits available to all seniors. For the fourth straight year, the Republican budget includes a plan that would shift health care costs onto seniors. And I can tell you what that means. It means that out-of....
