OVERVIEW
Alek Skarlatos would gut important health care protections and cut the take home pay for hard working Oregon families.

SUMMARY
Voters, voters on the go, and voters in the Portland Media Market need to see:

  • Alek Skarlatos’s views on health care are out-of-touch and would hurt Oregon families. Skarlatos said he would repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would allow wealthy insurance companies to kick Oregonians off their health coverage if they have a pre-existing condition. Skarlatos even supports cutting over $500 billion from Medicare while increasing insurance company profits by nearly $80 billion.

  • Skarlatos said he does not support minimum wage laws at all. His plan would gut the take home pay for essential workers, including childcare providers, school bus drivers, hospital support staff, and grocery workers. If Skarlatos had his way, big corporations would decide how little a worker should be paid, with no paycheck protections for hard-working Oregon families.

Women voters and younger voters in the Eugene area need to read and see on the go:

  • Skarlatos says he’d vote to defund Planned Parenthood, despite the critical health care they provide, including birth control and cancer screenings. And Skarlatos is backed by extremists who support taking away women’s reproductive freedom, opposing a woman’s right to abortion even in cases of rape or incest.
