Twitter Web App : As many families struggle to afford health care & make ends meet, the last thing they need is to be stuck w/ the bill for “gotcha” medical expenses. I'm taking the stories I heard today back to DC as I work across the aisle in the Senate to end surprise medical bills nationwide.

Twitter Web App : Thanks to the women I spoke with in Seattle today who shared their experiences of dealing with surprise medical bills. While WA has passed a strong law to protect patients, this is still a problem for families across the country.

TweetDeck : These latest reports of CBP officials mistreating pregnant women in their custody, including being shackled and denied the medical care they need, are extremely disturbing. I’m demanding answers to help ensure the health and safety of these women.

With so much at stake for patients and families, we must keep fighting back to #ProtectOurCare.
