Letter: Warren will fight against corruption


I have a family member who is a Type 1 diabetic. The cost of her insulin has more than doubled in just five years. My son needs to carry an Epipen, and the two injectors that cost $94 in 2007 now cost $700.

These medicines haven’t changed, but the pharmaceutical companies charge as much as they can get away with. Profit is their only motivation.

Elizabeth Warren has vowed to address corruption in drug companies and in the health insurers who work so hard to avoid paying claims. These reforms are essential to addressing the corrupt health care system Americans face.

Her commitment to a Medicare for All Option for people under 18, over 50, or at or below 200 percent of the poverty level is why she’s my preferred candidate for president.

In no other industrialized nation do people go bankrupt because they get sick.

Let’s begin this transition to a viable health care system by electing a candidate who has sworn to end family bankruptcies caused by one dangerous diagnosis.

Anyone with questions will find answers at www.elizabethwarren.com. All her plans — and she has a lot of them — are laid out clearly.

Please join me in supporting this outstanding candidate.
