YOUR LETTERS: Ann Wagner champion of Big Pharma, not working people


A dark money group tied to the pharmaceutical industry is getting involved in our race, misleading voters about Ann Wagner’s record on health care. They even took out a local newspaper ad to call her a “Champion of Patient Access.”

But let’s take a look at the facts:

  • She voted to kick millions of people off their health insurance – including those with pre-existing conditions.
  • She voted against lowering the cost of prescription drugs.
  • She has received nearly $150,000 in campaign contributions from pharmaceutical PACs

Ann Wagner is a champion for Big Pharma — not hardworking Missourians.

This misleading ad is just the beginning. We know that dark money groups will spend whatever it takes to prop up Ann Wagner’s campaign, so we need your support now to help us fight back and set the record straight.

Ann Wagner will always vote the way her special interest backers tell her to because they’re the ones bankrolling her campaign.

I am not taking any corporate PAC money in this race because I am committed to fighting for the people of MO-02 above anything else.

In Congress, I will work to ensure everyone has access to health care and I’ll tackle the skyrocketing costs of prescription drugs.
