Featured on The Huffington Post, May 15, 2013
Featured on The Huffington Post, May 15, 2013 -- For many Latino families in my district, there is no more important issue than access to quality, affordable health care. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 30 percent of Latinos lack health insurance. This is the highest uninsured rate of any racial and ethnic group in the United States.

It is also why Congress needs to focus on implementation of the ACA, not its elimination.
