Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Emplear la Ley de Atención Asequible (Affordable Care Act, ACA) como base para garantizar que todos los estadounidenses tengan acceso a cuidados de la salud asequibles y para que se reduzca el costo de los medicamentos recetados.
  • Reducir la violencia armada aprobando y aplicando las verificaciones de antecedentes universales, prohibiendo las armas automáticas, adoptando leyes de bandera roja y aumentando los servicios de salud mental.
  • Restablecer a los Estados Unidos en el Acuerdo Climático de París.

Anna G. Eshoo was first sworn in as a Member of the United States House of Representatives in 1993, after serving on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors for 10 years. For over two decades Congresswoman Anna Eshoo has been a consumer advocate, champion of technological innovation, land preservationist and health care pioneer on behalf of her constituents. 


Anna is the Chair of the Health Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee where she is working to lower prescription drug prices and ensure health care access and coverage for everyone. In addition, as a member of the Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, she has had a hand in shaping communications policy for the 21st Century. In that capacity she has been Congress’ leading voice to maintain Net Neutrality and a free, open and accessible Internet.


Anna also served on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, where she chaired the Subcommittee on Intelligence Community Management which focuses on challenges affecting all 16 agencies comprising the nation’s intelligence community. Anna worked to improve Congressional oversight of the intelligence community and to protect national security and civil liberties.


Presidents Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump signed more than forty of Anna’s bills into law. 


Anna has authored many landmark pieces of legislation which shape our world today. Her accomplishments include:

• Creating the use of electronic signatures, making legally binding digital documents possible and allowing online commerce to flourish;
• Securing funding for broadband deployment, health information technology, and research and education for mathematics, life sciences, and engineering;
• Giving discounts to schools and libraries to increase public Internet access;
• Providing emergency call centers with funding to obtain the necessary technology to locate mobile phone users when they call 911; 

• Improving the energy efficiency of federal computer data centers;
• Promoting better labeling and testing of pharmaceuticals for children;
• Exempting FEMA mitigation grants from income taxes and saving homeowners from being required to pay the government for vital damage prevention;
• Providing a pathway to create "generic" versions of biologic drugs which will lower the price of life-saving therapies and foster new medical innovations;
• Ensuring that low-income women who are diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer receive treatment, and insurance companies pay for reconstructive surgery for these patients;
• Reducing lead exposure from household water sources; and
• Lowering the volume of loud television advertisements.


Honors, awards and recognitions for Anna are many and varied.


They include the Congressional Champion of Hope Award from the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, The Science Coalition’s Champion of Science, the Spirit of Innovation Award from the Telecommunications Industry Association, the Lifetime Achievement Honoree and Spirit of Silicon Valley Award from the Silicon Valley Leadership Group and the Cities' Champion Award from the Cities Association of Santa Clara County.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California (3)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid, and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Respuesta de Anna G. Eshoo:

I await the introduction of a comprehensive Infrastructure bill.  I support spending federal dollars for this national responsibility. Proud too have written “Dig Once” legislation that requires that every road built with federal funds must build in cable for broadband.  It’s efficient and cost effective.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Anna G. Eshoo:

I support protecting and strengthening the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid and Medicare to achieve affordable, universal health care for all. I am also committed to ensuring that insurance companies protect their patients. As Chair of the House Subcommittee on Health, I have recently worked on legislation to reduce the cost of prescription drugs, eliminate “surprise” billing, improve the maternal mortality rate and raise the legal age for buying e-cigarettes and cigarettes.

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House of Representatives.
Respuesta de Anna G. Eshoo:

I support comprehensive immigration reform that provides a timely pathway to citizenship for our undocumented community and especially Dreamers, modernizing our visa program, providing humanitarian relief for those fleeing violence, enhancing border security and increasing employer accountability for employing undocumented workers.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Keeping the American Dream real and accessible for each successive generation of Americans is a primary goal of my public service.  Expanding opportunity and making it available for everyone requires constant work, but it keeps faith with the vision of our Founding Fathers.


Pursuing inclusion, fairness and equality in modern American isn’t always easy.  I work to ensure those standards are embedded in public policies everyday.
