About her opponent, Jesse Jensen

Even in the middle of a pandemic, Jesse Jensen has the wrong priorities.

Jesse Jensen supports gutting protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions, potentially including coronavirus. Jensen’s plan means that out-of-pocket deductibles could cost up to nearly $100,000, and it could allow health insurance companies to refuse to cover things like hospitalization and prescription drugs. Jensen also is pushing to raise the retirement age for Social Security and has even proposed moving toward privatizing Social Security.
