US Representative, 1st Congressional District
Christina's Message: "When I was 6 months pregnant with my first child, my husband changed jobs and his new insurance provider told me that I might not be able to receive coverage because my pregnancy was considered a 'pre-existing condition.'
"Our family’s experience has driven my passion for fixing broken systems — from ensuring veterans have access to quality care to improving outcomes for people struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues. My work has shown me firsthand how America’s health care system is slanted in favor of insurance and drug companies, instead of the people seeking the care they deserve.
"I understand that families in our district are forced to make tough choices every day — between paying for necessary health care or paying off a student loan bill or putting food on the table — because I’ve been there with my own family.
"My promise to you is that I’ll go to Congress to change Washington and put PA-01 families first again. I’ll fight to lower the cost of insurance and prescription drugs, decrease the burden of student debt, and provide real retirement security for our seniors. And I’ll never forget the community I came from."
