Economy & Jobs


Supporting 7th District Businesses & Entrepreneurs Rep. Spanberger is actively focused on advancing legislation that grows the Seventh District’s small businesses, reduces unnecessary regulatory burdens, cuts red tape, and invests in critical physical infrastructure improvements that support growth — like expanded broadband internet access. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, she is working to make sure Virginia employers and employees are able to recover and succeed. Strengthening Workforce Training & Apprenticeships Whether they choose to go to college or not, Rep. Spanberger believes that all Virginia workers should have access to the education and training they need to achieve career success, earn a good living, and keep the Commonwealth the best state in the country for business. Rep. Spanberger is working in Congress to increase investment in vocational training and apprenticeship programs for young people that lead to better-paying jobs, support the growth of small businesses in our communities, and prepare the next generation as they enter a competitive and rapidly changing global economy.

Healthcare


Expanding Access to Affordable Healthcare Coverage Virginians deserve strong access to quality, affordable health insurance, and Rep. Spanberger is fighting to expand healthcare coverage for everyone. She believes in stabilizing the Affordable Care Act and preserving its protections for the more than 1.3 million Virginians with pre-existing conditions. Rep. Spanberger is also working to reduce premiums in the insurance marketplace and to lower out-of-pocket costs. She supports universal coverage through the adoption of a public option and, in Congress, she advocates for solutions that achieve real progress, respond to the unique challenges of Virginia’s rural communities, support the Commonwealth’s expansion of Medicaid coverage, and preserve funding for critical programs like the Children’s Health Insurance Plan. Lowering Prescription Drug Costs As Rep. Spanberger meets with families, patients, providers, and community healthcare organizations across Virginia’s Seventh District; she repeatedly hears about the financial struggles facing seniors, families, and those with chronic conditions as their prescription drug costs continue to rise. Rep. Spanberger supports giving Medicare the power to negotiate drug prices, so that more senior citizens in the Commonwealth do not have to choose between putting food on the table or affording their life-saving medications. Additionally, she has led many bipartisan efforts to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable, increase transparency in the prescription drug marketplace, and prevent shortages by manufacturing essential medicines here at home. Addressing the Opioid Abuse & Addiction Epidemic Rep. Spanberger recognizes that the addiction and overdose crisis is the other deadly pandemic happening in our country. She’s spoken to too many families who have lost loved ones to addiction and overdose. Rep. Spanberger supports a national response that invests in preventing overdoses, expanding access to treatment, and supporting individuals in recovery from addiction as they seek to reclaim their health and well-being. She believes that an effective response involves working directly with community leaders, law enforcement officials, religious organizations, and healthcare professionals to build an actionable strategy to provide treatment, recovery, and wraparound services to everyone impacted by the opioid epidemic. Protecting Women’s Healthcare Access Rep. Spanberger believes that protecting women’s access to reproductive healthcare is a social and economic necessity. She supports maintaining federal funding to Planned Parenthood and other providers that provide essential healthcare screenings and preventive services to both women and men. Additionally, she is actively seeking innovative, bipartisan legislative solutions to help combat rising rates of maternal mortality in the United States, particularly within historically underserved and disadvantaged communities.

National Defense & Foreign Affairs


Supporting our Servicemembers & their Families A former federal law enforcement officer and CIA officer, Rep. Spanberger’s career in public service has focused on protecting American families and economic interests from a wide range of domestic and foreign threats. She recognizes the tremendous sacrifice of those who serve in our military, and she believes we have a sacred obligation to honor their dedication to our country and to give them the support they deserve. In Congress, Rep. Spanberger is committed to providing our servicemembers with the compensation, training, equipment, and benefits they need to successfully carry out their vital missions and protect their fellow citizens. She is working in the U.S. House to find additional ways to support military families as their loved ones serve abroad and as they eventually transition to civilian life. Reinforcing the Importance of Diplomacy & Our Relationships with U.S. Allies Rep. Spanberger knows that the United States today faces many foreign threats from its adversaries, and she believes that a strong diplomatic presence is a core component of our national security and must not be lessened or ignored. To ensure our communities stay protected, Rep. Spanberger is fighting to reaffirm the importance of our country’s relationships with its key allies, including member countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, she will continue to voice her unwavering support for U.S. diplomats, law enforcement, intelligence officers, and civil servants who work every day at home and abroad to identify dangerous threats, prevent tragedies, and save American lives.

“Abigail Spanberger and her team broke through traditional bureaucracy and found a swift solution to my dispute with the Virginia Army National Guard. You can place your trust in them.”

“We had been waiting for a refund from the government for over a year. The office of Representative Spanberger worked on our behalf and we are thrilled that they resolved our situation and we received our refund. We so appreciate their attention to our need!”

“Congresswoman Spanberger - I want to express my sincere gratitude for the time and attention that was provided assisting me. You demonstrated such a high level of support and professionalism by constantly communicating the status of my requests.”
