BOZEMAN, MT — Tonight, as part of her weekly “Wednesdays with Williams” online discussion, Kathleen Williams, candidate for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat, spoke with Dr. Jack Hensold of Bozeman Deaconess Hospital about the importance of enhancing Montana’s rural healthcare system. She also took questions from a Facebook Live audience.
“Ensuring everyone has access to affordable, quality healthcare,” said Kathleen when asked about her priorities. “I’ve been working on those issues since my three terms in the legislature, and I was a care-giver beginning at age 11.”
Kathleen is the candidate in Montana’s House race who will fight to get Montanans the quality, affordable healthcare they need. In the legislature, Kathleen worked with both parties to pass Medicaid expansion and stop insurers from denying care for cancer patients. She will continue to work to protect those in need, including Montanans with pre-existing conditions.
Kathleen has always been a champion for health care for Montanans and her platform includes:
- Allowing Americans 55 and older to buy into Medicare
- Protecting key provisions of the ACA like coverage for pre-existing conditions and helping more Americans get the coverage they need
- Allowing Medicare to bargain for prescription drug prices just like the VA and Medicaid, while saving $11 billion.
Kathleen Williams has been called the “candidate Montana has been waiting for.” A three-term legislator with a nearly four-decade career solving tough issues and getting results, she is true to Montana—hard-working, independent, and honest. In Congress, she’ll stand up to special interests and partisan gridlock, and work just as hard for Montanans as they do every day.
