Mary Brannon ~ U.S. House, District 4
“I chose to run for office, because I did not like the way the nation was headed” (Ballotpedia). Mary graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a B.S. in education and a Master’s in human relations. She worked as a school counselor and teacher for Purcell ISD for nearly 25 years. Her main priorities include supporting Oklahoma schools, protecting Social Security/Medicare/Medicaid, our Veterans, as well as providing transparency in government.”
On healthcare . . .
“Every Republican voted against HR 3, Lower the Drug Costs Now Act. When I asked Tom Cole at his most recent Town Hall why, he did not have a good answer. He voted Medicare cannot negotiate lower prices. Elderly Oklahomans must decide lifesaving medicine or groceries. Insulin is so expensive some just die because they cannot afford it. Big Pharma has the most lobbyist in Washington,3 per elected official. Elderly folks going hungry and people dying is not my America. Both Big Pharma and Big Insurance are having record profits, while costs of Insurance Premiums skyrocket and lifesaving medicines are out of reach.”
On the environment . . .

Plans for Economy
“I follow the Democratic platform as my own. Return the tax cuts to where they were. Make the richest 2 percent pay their fair share. The
US posted many billions in deficit last month, the biggest one-month deficit in history. (Businessinsider.com.) Our kids, their kids, their kids will pay it back, not fair to them. It helped Wall street more than Main street. Just as Economists predicted, no trickle down, companies stay where cheap labor is and very few have moved back, including Ivanka’ Trump. It was pocketed for record profits, and balloons the deficit. Trump promised he “would not cut Social Security or Medicare. The next day, the 2021 budget was posted with cuts to Social Security 30 billion, and cuts to Medicare 850 Billion. Yet, nothing said about taking the tax cuts away from their donors. 2 senators want to make the deficit an emergency, that will have different rules.”
