The Commonwealth of Kentucky has some of the worst healthcare numbers in the country.
We have the highest rate of deaths from cancer in the nation. Kentucky’s numbers are almost 30% higher than the national average, and in some counties, in the 6th district, it is nearly 50% higher.
We have a congressman who time and time again has sided with insurance companies… and who has voted to kick over half a million Kentuckians off their health insurance.
More will lose access to health insurance because they have pre-existing conditions. “Pre-existing condition” it is not just a fancy phrase. Pre-existing conditions are people; like your neighbor with high-blood pressure, the person you attend church with who has diabetes, or your child’s friend from school who survived cancer.
As your next congressman, Reggie Thomas will fight not only to protect the health insurance you have but to make sure every Kentuckian has affordable health insurance. Because healthcare is a right, not a privilege.
In the greatest country on the face of the earth, no one should die from a preventable illness just because some insurance company wanted to pad its bottom line.
