Opinion: Dr. Andy McGuire has the perfect combination of experience, expertise and compassion for Governor of Iowa

I was very excited to caucus for the second time on Monday, February 5th. In 2016, I caucused for my first time, and I caucused for Bernie Sanders for President. Unlike 2016, this year, caucusgoers did not automatically separate into preference groups, and my precinct chose not to divide into preference groups. But, if we had, I would have caucused for Dr. Andy McGuire because I believe she is the gubernatorial candidate who knows what it takes to defeat Gov. Reynolds in November.

Dr. Andy McGuire has the perfect combination of experience, expertise and compassion to help resolve the worsening health care crisis in our state. From denying women access to health care to creating a disaster with Medicaid privatization, Gov. Reynolds has failed again and again to make access to affordable health care a priority for her administration.

The Reynolds administration has also ignored our state’s mental health and substance abuse crisis. Gov. Reynolds has been in the executive branch for over 8 years and stood by while our state closed essential mental health facilities with no alternatives for care. Gov. Reynolds applauded the closure of Planned Parenthood facilities that gave women access to family planning. She and Iowa Republicans promised to provide alternative family planning facilities, and now we know that they have failed to fulfill that promise.

When it comes to fixing health care, I think the doctor knows best. I’ve met Dr. McGuire several times, and I have seen how hard she works and how much she cares for others. That’s exactly the kind of person and the kind of Governor that Iowa desperately needs to elect this November.

      These 2 led the charge to civil discord. It’s all about the benjamins. Starting in the late 70’s it was spawned. Those plastic Bankers Cards took away your nickels and dimes too. Flunkies or at the very least at the bottom of the class when it comes to understanding the American way. Capitalized on their weaknesses for the win!

    Is this bird your chirping about a liberal ? Sounds like it – As Regan said – if fascism every comes to America it will be under the cover of liberalism = Democrap demonic party of Anti Americans. Meanwhile the whitehouse had heating problems – seems the heat registers were clogged with chicken bones – read it on Infro Wars this morning.

    Anyone who leans towards the old communist Sanders will never get my vote.

    Don’t let this distract you from the fact that Kim Reynolds has two drunk driving arrests and I’ll be voting for her anyway.

      She is a recovered alcoholic and should be given credit for getting off alcohol, not made fun of. It was eighteen years ago.
