Healthcare & COVID-19
The federal government has failed to respond adequately to the COVID-19 outbreak. Texas has been hit especially hard with 860,000 cases and almost 18,000 deaths and counting. President Trump and Congress have done little to help the 27th District since the CARES Act passed in March.
We still lack a uniform response based on the best scientific evidence available. As your representative, Ricardo De La Fuente will push for free testing across the country so we have a fuller picture of COVID-19’s spread. Ricardo De La Fuente has donated personal protective equipment and other supplies to organizations throughout the district. Neighbors help neighbors during times of crisis; we need a leader to bring that principle to Congress.
The 27th District has a 31% uninsured rate, over three times the national uninsured rate. Access to affordable healthcare is essential in the best of times; during a pandemic, it means life or death. Ricardo De La Fuente will fight for affordable access to healthcare so that you can live a healthy life from birth to old age.
