ELK GROVE, CA. – Dr. Ami Bera earned the endorsement of the Sacramento Bee Editorial Board for the California 7th Congressional District’s Primary Election.
“Bera has a clear agenda. He wants to tackle big economic issues such as job losses due to automation and artificial intelligence. He also wants to continue working to expand health care coverage. He is proposing to automatically enroll some people in Medicaid, unless they opt out. He is backing a bill to move health plan enrollment from the end of the year to April, when he says people can make smarter choices as they also do their taxes. And he is looking at offering more affordable coverage, with lower premiums but higher deductibles, to middle-income families who don’t get government subsidies.”
Primary Election Day will take place on June 5th, and early voting will begin the week of May 7th with ballots being mailed to every registered voter in Sacramento County.
