Cindy Axne’s New Ad Highlights Stark Difference in Health Care Records
Des Moines, IA – Today, the reelection campaign for Representative Cindy Axne released her second television advertisement of the 2020 general election.
The ad, titled “Baggage”, highlights the difference in voting records between Axne and former Representative David Young on protecting health care for Iowans – including Young’s vote to end protections for pre-existing conditions, and her work to lower drug prices and health care costs for Iowa families.
“I’ve never lost sight of what’s important to Iowa,” Cindy Axne tells Iowans in the ad. “I’ve fought for quality, affordable health care and lower drug prices…I want to lighten the load for all Iowans.”
Last week, Axne unveiled her first advertisement for the 2020 cycle, “Came Through,” which highlights her work fighting for coronavirus aid for Iowa families, businesses, and communities.
Representative Axne is currently serving her first term in Congress, where she serves on the House Agriculture and Financial Services Committees. She also is a member of the House Rural Broadband Task Force, Biofuels Caucus, and New Democrat Coalition’s Health Care Task Force.
Over her first term in Congress, Axne has made expanding access to affordable, quality health care a top priority. The House has passed legislation she authored to lower out-of-pocket costs and insurance premiums and cut patient wait times and administrative red tape. Axne has also helped advance legislation out of the House to lower the costs of prescription drugs and reinforce protections for preexisting medical conditions. Axne has also introduced legislation to provide relief for Iowa’s rural hospitals, address surprise medical billing, and has sought to protect COVID-19 aid for Iowa health centers.
Axne was named the Most Accessible Freshman Member of Congress by the Town Hall Project after holding 57 town halls in 2019.
Prior to her election, Axne worked for the State of Iowa from 2005 to 2014, helping over twenty different state agencies deliver government services more effectively and efficiently for taxpayers. She owns and operates a digital design firm with her husband John.
Narrator: “When David Young went to Congress, he was supposed to carry Iowa priorities with him.
But he ended up with much more baggage from his time in D.C.
He voted to gut protections for pre-existing conditions and strip health care from millions.”
Cindy Axne: “I’m Cindy Axne and I’ve never lost sight of what’s important to Iowa.
That’s why I’ve fought for quality, affordable health care and lower drug prices.
I approve this message because I want to lighten the load for all Iowa families.”
