Alice Schultz: Denham neglects women’s health

As a woman in the Central Valley, health care is one of the most important things to me and my family. Our representative, Jeff Denham, voted to allow health insurance companies to charge women more for health care than men and even voted to make it tougher for women to receive critical cancer screenings. While voting to decrease women’s access to health care, Denham voted to give himself health care for life. The women of the Central Valley need a congressman who will stand up for our health care, not just health care for himself. Michael Eggman gets it. He’s not a career politician, and in Congress he’ll be a common-sense leader and stand up for women’s health care.
