C4PC ENDORSES LAURA MOSER FOR CONGRESS IN TX-07

Baltimore, MD; May 9, 2018 - Clinicians for Progressive Care is excited to announce our endorsement of Laura Moser for Texas’ Seventh Congressional District. As a journalist and political activist, Laura will fight for progressive values in health care, education, and workers rights, and against the rising tide of racism and bigotry.

Laura was born and raised in Southside Place, TX. She graduated from Amherst College and worked as an editor and national journalist for periodicals including the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. After the 2016 election, she founded Daily Action, a text-messaging service that empowers citizens to demand change in Washington.

Laura supports single payer and universal insurance coverage; she will begin by offering a strong public option, lowering eligibility for Medicare to 55 years and expanding eligibility for Medicaid. She wants to decrease burdens of racial inequality by strengthening unions that offer health benefits, job stability and fair wages.

Laura understands that people suffering from substance use disorders need treatment, not moralizing rhetoric. She plans to improve health care for women by increasing access to contraceptives and safe abortions.

While universal care and reproductive health rights are risky stances in some quarters, Laura Moser is not the one to hold back from a fight for progressive beliefs. She is on the side of ordinary Texans and will be their unafraid advocate in Congress.

Clinicians for Progressive Care (C4PC) believes we can't fight for healthcare without electing candidates who believe in it. Previous endorsements in both Congressional and state-level races can be found here.

C4PC ENDORSES CHRISTINE EADY MANN, DO, FOR CONGRESS IN TX-31

Family doctor, small-business owner, working mother. Good for Texas and the nation. A true progressive, not an opportunist.

Family doctor, small-business owner, working mother. Good for Texas and the nation. A true progressive, not an opportunist.

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.
