“It’s no surprise to see Rep. Jason Lewis on the ‘Worst for Women’ list. He voted multiple times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which has brought Minnesota’s uninsured rate to an all-time low – and he’s consistently made demeaning remarks about women. He has even called women ‘non-thinking’ for wanting health insurance for birth control. He is bad for Minnesota women and it is crucial to replace him with a lawmaker who will protect health care and reproductive rights in the upcoming election.”
From reprehensible quotes to reprehensible votes, Rep. Jason Lewis has consistently shown that he does not deserve to represent the people of Minnesota.
