Meet Ann Ashford, Candidate for Congress NE CD-2
Today’s bonus pod features Ann Ashford, Dem candidate for Congress NE CD-2. Ann is an attorney and has many years of experience in the healthcare industry.
Ann’s husband Brad Ashford is a former NE- District 2 representative. Ann believes her work with people in the private sector helping them work through their benefits in HR have led her to be more compassionate, empathetic, and understanding of the human struggles.
We talk about the HOT topic of healthcare. Ann wants to expand on Obamacare- add a public buy in option, limit pharmaceutical advertising direct to consumer, and pass legislation to allow the government to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies. Find details to her plan here.
Ann also wants universal pre-K, which we strongly support based on the research. She also wants student loan debt to be forgive-able with volunteerism and non-profit work… Along with sponsoring a bill to make teachers’ salaries tax free, essentially giving them higher paychecks to take home in their pockets.
Also, we have a newsletter and would love for you to sign up! http://eepurl.com/gXFo1b
