Script of the health care ad:
Dianne Feinstein: “I’m Dianne Feinstein and I approve this message. I support the Affordable Care Act and voted against all of Trump’s attempts to repeal it. But we need to do more. I believe in universal healthcare, in a public health option to compete with private insurance companies and expanding Medicare to everyone over 55. And I believe Medicare must be empowered to negotiate the price of drugs.”
