Becky Anderson Wilkins is the progressive fighter we need for Illinois’s Sixth District. As your representative in Congress, you can count on Becky to stand up to Donald Trump and fight for our values.

The Becky Anderson Wilkins Agenda includes:

Ensuring Quality Health Care for Everyone

Becky believes that health care is a right, not a privilege, and it’s deeply personal for her. Becky was fortunate to have access to quality health care and the right treatment options in her fight against breast cancer, and she is committed to ensuring every American can have good health care coverage.

She will protect, strengthen, and improve the Affordable Care Act so everyone, including those with pre-existing conditions, has access to quality health care they can afford. And Becky will stand up to protect a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices.

Protecting Social Security and Medicare

Now more than ever, our social safety net is at risk. Social Security and Medicare are critical backstops against older citizens living their later years without health care or income. However, both programs, despite their success, are under constant threat as the president and congressional leaders look for ways to make drastic cuts. Becky won’t let that happen.

Enacting Commonsense Gun Safety Measures

It seems as though as the news of one senseless gun tragedy fades from the headlines, another takes its place. The ready availability of handguns and assault rifles creates an environment where mass killings are too common. Becky stood up to the NRA as a Naperville City Councilor, and she’ll do it day after day in Congress.

Becky believes in pursuing commonsense gun safety measures that reduce the number of illegal guns in our communities, make it harder for people who shouldn’t have guns to get them, and prevent those on the no-fly list from buying guns. Becky also believes in improving funding for the ATF so they can more effectively enforce the laws we already have.

Taking Money Out of Politics

Corporations are not people. Becky believes we need to eliminate the so-called “dark money” that allows corporate interests and billionaires to secretly spend millions on political campaigns. She also believes that lobbyists control too many of our elected officials. That’s why Becky will not take a single penny from a lobbyist during this campaign. Zip, zero, zilch.

Standing Up to Trump

With one party in charge of the White House, the U.S. Senate, and the U.S. House of Representatives, Donald Trump is free to try to enact any bad idea that comes to mind. Becky will fight President Trump’s unconstitutional travel ban. She supports allowing the 800,000 DREAMers to stay in the country and passing comprehensive immigration reform. And she will provide a check against the bad policies coming from the Trump Administration.
