As a Congresswoman, Zerqa will work across the aisle to support policies that:
Access to quality and affordable healthcare for all
Ensure retirement security
Expand Social Security and limiting the government’s ability to borrow from
Social Security funds
Provide paid family leave policies for caretakers in immediate family
Stop elderly abuse and exploitation
When Zerqa’s mother had a stroke while visiting Pakistan, Zerqa flew to Pakistan and brought her back to the USA. For the next two years, she took care of her mother while navigating through rehab centers and hospitals, Medicaid and Medicare during the pandemic. She knows first hand the struggles that our aging communities face, from being able to stay in their homes to navigating their healthcare needs. Our seniors need the government to ensure they have the resources they need to age with dignity.
