Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) is at the home of one of her constituents, having a conversation with voters and medical professionals about health care, drug prices, and mental health. Porter is the first Democrat ever to represent her district. While on the campaign trail in 2018, she suffered a burst appendix. Fearing medical bills she couldn’t afford, he avoided an ambulance and asked her campaign manager to drive her past the nearest emergency room to a further hospital that was in network. But she was still stuck with a surprise $2,800 because her surgeon turned out to be out of network. In Congress, she’s prioritized bills to protect consumers, lower drug prices, and stop surprise medical bills.
