Healthcare

All South Texans deserve access to affordable, quality healthcare, especially those who live in rural communities and medically underserved areas. Unfortunately, South Texas is home to a large uninsured or underinsured population. Congressman Gonzalez is working with his colleagues to develop innovative ideas that lower healthcare costs and provide better coverage for more people.

Seniors & Medicare

For decades, Medicare and Social Security have helped millions of Americans retire comfortably after a lifetime of work. As a country, we made a promise to protect our elderly and ensure they would have reliable access to the resources and support that they earned.
