Congresswoman Alma Adams

Representing the 12th District of North Carolina


Health Care

Health care is important to our district and to Congresswoman Adams’ work in Congress. She has been a staunch and ardent supporter of the Affordable Care Act, which has brought lifesaving insurance coverage to millions, including hundreds of thousands in North Carolina’s 12th District.

Congresswoman Adams is a proud cosponsor of bills that protect women’s health, medical research and the elimination of taxes on health care benefits for Middle Class families. She has also written to North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory urging that he expand Medicaid in the state for more than 319,000 North Carolinians.

“The Congressional Budget Office score confirms our worse fear - the Republican measure will cost lives,” said Congresswoman Adams. “The thirty-nine percent of American children who rely on Medicaid will immediately lose their healthcare coverage and by 2026 another 22 million Americans will be without coverage. This heartless measure comes at cost the American people cannot afford. A treatable illness shouldn't be a death sentence, but tragically the CBO confirmed today, that will be the case for millions of Americans if Trumpcare becomes law.”

Have you—or anyone you know—skipped needed health care because of cost? Since this is true of one in three Americans, you probably answered yes. Do you think this is unfair?
When I worked as a family doctor at Carolinas Medical Center-Biddle Point, I saw people every day who didn’t get needed health care because they couldn’t pay. I don’t think it’s fair. There is another kind of health care system which would eliminate this unfairness.
