Andy McGuire will return Iowa to a healthy state

The race for governor. Ah, where to begin.

If health care is a priority for you — as it should be — you likely share my concern about what the future holds for Iowa women, for mentally ill Iowans and for disabled Iowans.

Medicaid privatization was rushed and ill-conceived. Tax cuts for the wealthy translate to deep cuts in services for our most vulnerable. And Iowa woman don’t stand a chance to get the health care they need and deserve.

I say, “Call a doctor!”

Among the many fine candidates running for governor is Dr. Andy McGuire. She’s a doctor with executive experience. Putting the patient first always has been her mantra. And as governor, she’ll put Iowans first.

Our state is in a health care crisis and Dr. McGuire is the most qualified candidate to return Iowa to a healthy state. We don’t need another politician to dictate our health care policy. We need someone with the knowledge, expertise and experience to fix our broken health care system. That person is Dr. McGuire. I will be voting for her in the June 5 primary.
