Occupation: U.S Congressman
Prior Governmental Experience:
Kurt Schrader: Oregon Values. Real Progress
Better Healthcare. Lower Costs – Kurt has worked for universal healthcare, defended and strengthened the Affordable Care Act and passed legislation to lower prescription during costs.
Fighting Climate Change – As an organic farmer, Kurt understands first hand the devastating impact of climate change here in Oregon. That’s why he is pushing to rejoin the Paris Climate Accords and is sponsoring a plan to drastically reduce carbon emissions from the nation’s power plants
Strengthening Education, Building Opportunity – Kurt has been a leader in strengthening career and technical education, increasing funding for Head Start, Pell grants, and special education and working to reduce the cost of student loans.
Endorsed by Oregon Educational Association
Compassionate, Fair Immigration Policy – Kurt believes no child should be separated from their family. He sponsored legislation to end the President’s cruel family separation policy and reunite migrant children with their parents. Kurt supports protecting those undocumented Dreamers brought to the U.S as children.
“Congressman Schrader believes health care, including reproductive health, is a fundamental right and no politician should come between a person and their doctor. That’s why we need Kurt in Congress.” –Alexis McGill Johnson, acting President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Action Fund
Kurt is always accessible, holding community meetings and town halls through the 4th district. And he puts people first, cutting through red tape and returning over $5 million in stalled Social Security Payments, delayed IRS refunds, and denied VA benefits for Oregon’s warriors.
“I am honored to serve as your voice for Oregon. I will continue working hard to turn our values and priorities into real progress in Washington D.C. I appreciate your vote” – Kurt Schrader
