This past week my opponent released new ads. One ad awkwardly features a grim reaper in a failed, humorous attempt to call me “scary.”
This election, and affordable access to health care for hundreds of thousands of working North Carolinians, is not a laughing matter. It’s disturbing that weeks away from the most important election of our lifetime, Joyce Krawiec isn’t just trying to run from her record of denying health care to over 600,000+ North Carolinians – she’s joking about it. Serving in the Senate is a tremendous responsibility, not a joke. There’s too much at stake.
As I speak to voters at the polls during early voting, health care comes up repeatedly as the issue of most concern. It isn’t funny that health care costs are skyrocketing. It isn’t funny that people have a very real fear of losing coverage for their pre-existing conditions, for maternity care, for cancer screenings, and more. It certainly isn’t funny that 600,000+ North Carolinians have no access to health care, during a pandemic, because of the failed leadership of Joyce Krawiec and the Republicans in the NC Senate. The bottom line is, access to affordable health care isn’t a joke.
