Health & Education

The skyrocketing cost of health care has hurt New Mexican families. Obamacare only increased costs for Americans who were told if we liked our health coverage, we could keep it. We know now that was a lie. Congress can and should work to bring transparency to the health care system. Doing so will result in lower costs for patients – from what they pay for health insurance to what they pay at the pharmacy counter. We must also ensure that where you live does not automatically put you at a disadvantage when seeking care by bringing quality health care services to rural areas across our state. 

New Mexico currently ranks last in public education. Instead of working with state leaders and the Congressional delegation to improve education in our state, President Joe Biden is pushing proposals that would gut New Mexico’s education system. In addition to ensuring every student has access to a quality education, we must also look at workforce training programs so students can also have the opportunity to learn trades and skills that will allow them to enter the workforce directly upon graduation. Additionally, for those who choose to attend college or university, colleges and universities should be provide degrees that are marketable to employers without charging exorbitant tuition and fees so that graduates are not beginning their careers saddled with debt.

Sponsored Legislation

The CRT Transparency Act - This legislation would solve this problem by requiring school districts to post their school’s curriculum online so parents can see what their children are being taught.
