It’s difficult to find common ground on many major legislative topics between Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and David Vitter, R-La., and Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fl., and Renee Ellmers, R-N.C. However, health topics can be a unifying force in Congress.
The four lawmakers last week joined forces to introduce House and Senate bills to reauthorize a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention program that offers education and public outreach toward young women about breast cancer. Diseases do not target party affiliation and breast cancer programs are a prominent objective for each lawmaker.
