Iowa’s 2nd (IA - 02)

Updated: September 17, 2020

Overview

When it comes to our health, Mariannette Miller-Meeks puts the drug and insurance companies first – ahead of us.

Summary

Iowa Voters and voters on the go need to see:

  • Mariannette Miller-Meeks takes money from the drug and insurance industry and backs their special interests plans. No wonder Miller-Meeks supports raising the retirement age and ending the Medicare guarantee. She also blamed the rising cost of health care on Medicare. Miller-Meeks supports an industry-backed move that would allow insurance companies to charge older Americans more for their care – the AARP called it an “age tax.” (BACK UP)
  • Miller-Meeks would allow insurance companies to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions – like asthma, diabetes and cancer. Miller-Meeks would allow protections to be taken away from over one million Iowans. Miller-Meeks wants to phase out the employer deduction for health coverage. Her plan would undermine our current health care system of employer-based health insurance – as we know it. As insurance and drug companies continue to jack up prices, it would force all Americans to fend for themselves with insurance companies on the open market. (BACK UP)
