Everyone gets sick--and everyone deserves affordable care. Period.

Every Washingtonian, regardless of their income, deserves access to affordable health care.

As Attorney General, I am fighting for affordable care.

Last week, I joined a coalition of attorneys general to challenge President Trump's cruel decision to undermine the Affordable Care Act. President Trump's decision to withhold crucial health care subsidy payments will increase the premiums of 100,000 Washingtonians by up to 28%. I will do everything I can to halt this action.

Last month, I took two major Washington hospitals to court for violating our state laws designed to ensure those within 200% of the federal poverty line have access to affordable care.

And I am prosecuting major pharmaceutical companies and other powerful health care interests that fix prices and defraud Medicaid. Additionally, I have recovered tens of millions of dollars in stolen Medicaid dollars and returned that money back to the Medicaid system.

We all get sick. As Attorney General, I will continue fighting until all Washingtonians have access to affordable health care.
