Baltimore, MD (December 15, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care   announces its endorsement of Christine Eady Mann, DO, for Congress in Texas’ 31st District. Dr. Mann has been a family doctor in central Texas for nearly 20 years and understands what strengthening the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid -- on the way to universal coverage -- will do for Texans. As a physician, small-business owner, and working mother, Dr. Mann will restore common sense humanity to Congress. DONATE TO CHRISTINE MANN.

Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, the Treasurer of C4PC, says, “Dr. Christine Mann possesses an exciting combination of health expertise, the knowledge of what’s needed to make the Texas economy grow, and first-hand experience with the challenges of raising (and healing) children in Trump’s America. Unlike others in the primary, she is a true progressive, the right candidate to defeat the Trumpist incumbent John Carter. Carter has voted with Trump 96% of the time, and has spent his 16 years in Congress attempting to limit women’s reproductive health care, blaming immigrants, and trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He’s even voted for the GOP's Tax bill – which will make it harder for working class families to get by while increasing the deficit by over a trillion dollars."

Baltimore, MD (November 22, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care announces its endorsement of Jason Westin, MD, for Congress in Texas’ 7th District. DONATE TO JASON WESTIN.

A cancer specialist, husband, father, and proud Texan, Dr. Westin will bring compassion for all Americans to the House of Representatives and courage to the fight against extremist, anti-intellectual Trumpism. Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, the Treasurer of C4PC, says, “Republican incumbent John Culbertson has distinguished himself as a slavish Trumper, voting with him 98% of the time and sharing his hostility to immigrants, affordable healthcare, and women’s reproductive rights. On the other hand, Dr. Westin is poised to bring his experience as an oncologist, researcher, and policy advocate to Congress. A new broom sweeps clean, and a great doctor can diagnose and treat what ails the body politic.”

Dr. Westin is a well known MD Anderson faculty member whose laboratory investigates cancer treatments based on the immune system. He has become an ever more prominent voice among healthcare professionals fighting for what’s right: affordable, compassionate, dignified treatment for all Americans. As Dr. Westin says, he is the right man for the right district. Culbertson’s colors are showing more and more clearly, marking him as an unsteady, unstable Washington insider. Let’s send Dr. Westin to clean up Congress with the white coat of truth.

Clinicians for Progressive Care (C4PC) believes we can't fight for healthcare without electing candidates who believe in it. Previous endorsements include John W. Duncan for Congress in TX-6, Dotty Nygard, RN, in CA-10, Allison Galbraith in MD-01, Matt Heinz in AZ-2, and Bob Solomon in PA-18.

For Immediate Release

Baltimore, MD (November 15, 2017) -- Clinicians for Progressive Care announces its endorsement of John W. Duncan for Congress in Texas’ 6th District. John knows first-hand how important access to high-quality, affordable healthcare is to millions of Americans. While working to provide healthcare to Texans living with HIV/AIDS John realized the urgency of concrete steps to ensure good health for everyone. DONATE TO JOHN W. DUNCAN.

Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, the Treasurer of C4PC, says, “John Duncan is an exciting voice for the underserved, with practical, real-world experience in management, healthcare, and law. He is the right candidate to defeat the long-term, Trumpist incumbent Joe Barton, who has spent his time in Congress attempting to limit women’s reproductive health care, scapegoating immigrants, and trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act.”

Besides his advocacy for universal care through single payer, John Duncan supports evidence-backed treatment for substance use disorders rather than the failed system of imprisonment. He believes in the rights of the disabled to live in the community instead of institutions, understands the role of white supremacy in health disparities, and knows that transgender care matters to all of us. We look forward to supporting John to flip TX-6.
