U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D)


Notes: “As Chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Center, she makes sure there is Michigan voice at the table and that Congress’ priorities stay in line with the priorities of middle class families.”

On the Affordable Care Act: “Throughout her career, Senator Stabenow has made access to quality, affordable health care a top priority.

“Stabenow has long been recognized for her efforts to make prescription drugs more affordable, including provisions in the Affordable Care Act that lower the cost of medicine, and she has written legislation to allow the importation of safe prescription medicines from Canada. She has cosponsored legislation to allow Medicare to negotiate with drug companies to lower the cost of drugs for low-income seniors and people with disabilities who rely on Medicare.

“She is also a leading advocate of community health centers, which provide affordable, high-quality care in over 180 communities in Michigan. As part of the Affordable Care Act, she ensured that these health centers would get immediate assistance to expand their operations and provide primary care services to up to 25 million Americans in need.”
