“Jaime Herrera Beutler has made clear where her priorities lie in Congress: with the pharmaceutical and insurance interests who have given her more than enough money to buy her votes,” said Christina Reynolds, vice president of communications at EMILYs List. “On Election Day, voters will reject her special interest politics in favor of Carolyn Long, who will fight for health care for Washingtonians, not big corporate interests.”
VO: Enough is Enough!
VO: Three hundred and sixteen thousand dollars, the amount Jaime Herrera Beutler took from big health care and the insurance industry.
VO: Enough! To gutting protections for people with pre-existing conditions like asthma, cancer and diabetes.
VO: Enough! To increasing costs for prescription drugs.
VO: Enough! To the 42 billion dollar tax break to those same drug companies.
VO: Herrera Beutler has done enough for special interests, and now Southwest
Washington has had enough of her.
