About Dr. Bera

...
About Dr. Bera
As a doctor, Ami Bera has always put service first, and he believes that Congress should be a place for service. That's why Dr. Bera is fighting for the things that matter to Sacramento families.
Dr. Bera was first elected to represent Sacramento County in November 2012. As a first generation American, he attended California's public schools from kindergarten through to medical school. Dr. Bera served this community for 21 years as a doctor, as Sacramento County's Chief Medical Officer, and then as a Clinical Professor of Medicine at UC Davis, where he taught the next generation of doctors to care for their patients.
As someone who treated veterans in VA hospitals, Dr. Bera knows that mistreatment of veterans in need of medical care is a tragedy not to mention immoral and un-American. His office has helped hundreds of veterans through the backlog to get the treatment they've earned, and he's reached across party lines to get more medical staff into the VA so that no veteran has to wait for the care they need.
Dr. Bera believes that Medicare and Social Security are guaranteed promises and key to a dignified retirement. He has fought efforts to privatize Social Security and is working to reduce waste, abuse, and fraud in Medicare to protect it for the future. He was proud to receive the endorsement of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, because he understands that we must leave decisions about a woman's health to her and her doctor.
Dr. Bera is working with lawmakers from both parties on commonsense policies to move America forward, including slashing red tape for small businesses and cutting taxes for middle-class families.
Since being elected to office, he has:
...
Dr. Bera has seen firsthand how education can improve lives, and how too many cannot afford the education or job training they need to compete in our changing economy. He continues to put politics aside to rebuild an economy that values hard work and prioritizes the middle class. Dr. Bera would be honored to earn your vote.
Ami and his wife Janine live in Elk Grove with their daughter, Sydra (when she's home from college). For more updates on Dr. Bera follow @BeraforCongress on Twitter, like Bera for Congress on Facebook, and sign up for updates on our homepage.


Endorsement: Rep. Ami Bera has earned a second term against worthy opponent Doug Ose | Bera for Congress

About Dr. Bera

...
Ami Bera has earned a second term against worthy opponent Doug Ose
...
Ami Bera never will be a smooth politician.
His Republican challenger, former Congressman Doug Ose, showed during their one and only debate last week that he can be more comfortable before an audience. But Bera is thoughtful, hardworking and has displayed a willingness to be bipartisan. For policy reasons and for the region's future, Bera deserves to be returned to Congress for a second term.
...
Bera won't slash health care for old people. Ose is not a Wall Street tool. Neither is out to use public office to line their pockets.
Your vote will count in this race.
Bera, 49, unseated Rep.
...
Bera is clear on that issue.
Ose sticks to GOP talking points on an immigration overhaul. Bera, the son of parents who came here from India, takes a more balanced approach, making clear his view that California relies on immigrants, and that the nation must provide ways for some people who came here illegally to gain legal status.
Ose says he would vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. That's a waste of time and counterproductive.
...
Bera never has wholeheartedly supported the Affordable Care Act. It doesn't do enough to control costs, he says. But given his obvious expertise, Bera is especially well-positioned to work on a bipartisan effort to make whatever changes are needed.
Bera, who oversaw admissions at UC Davis Medical School, can converse on a high level with Dr. Thomas Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control, about the Ebola epidemic and other health issues of the day.
...
By taking it, Bera has split from Democrats, including Rep.
...
But from his position on the foreign affairs committee, Bera has tried to extend the region's connections to India, working to expand agricultural exports there. Bera is the only Indian American member of Congress. He also has worked to obtain federal funding for much-needed Folsom Dam improvements.
The Bee's Editorial Board has endorsed Ose in the past, and might support him in a future race. But Bera has shown a willingness to work with Republicans, takes thoughtful positions, works hard and has earned a second term.

California's Ami Bera Doesn't Blend in on Capitol Hill, and That's OK | Bera for Congress

About Dr. Bera

...
California's Ami Bera Doesn't Blend in on Capitol Hill, and That's OK
...
In fact, Bera is a prominent Sacramento-area doctor, the only Indian-American in Congress and, this fall, fighting to keep his suburban 7th District seat in one of the nation's most competitive races.
...
"Let them bring it," Bera said of the Republicans.
"This really is about how we're going to care for our seniors and make sure they have the Social Security and Medicare they need," Bera told volunteers, "but also how we make sure those programs are available … for our children and grandchildren."
While it's far from clear whether the 49-year-old Bera will win another term, you shouldn't feel too bad for the guy. Young, charismatic and well-connected, he will certainly have other leadership opportunities, regardless.
If Bera doesn't hold his seat, "I'm sure he'll then decide on some other path to serve the public," says California Assemblyman Richard Pan, a fellow Democrat and doctor whose district overlaps with Bera's. If Bera doesn't hold his seat, "I'm sure he'll then decide on some other path to serve the public," says California Assemblyman Richard Pan, a fellow Democrat and doctor whose district overlaps with Bera's.
...
Bera "has quickly become a go-to member when it comes to getting things done in Congress," says Rep. Joe Crowley, a New York Democrat and senior party leader, whom Bera calls a mentor.
...
Before entering politics, Bera was the dean of admissions for the medical school at the University of California, Davis. He says he saw being a public servant as an extension of his medical career. Bera himself is a product of the UC system, receiving both his bachelor's and medical degrees from UC Irvine in Orange County.
"You'll often hear me talk about, on the stump, going to four years of undergrad, four years of med school … and graduating with less than $10,000 worth of student debt, which is pretty remarkable," Bera says. "For far too many of the next generation of kids, they're priced out of being able to reach their goals."
Bera and his wife moved to the Sacramento area in 1995. He practiced internal medicine; she pursued her own medical degree at UC Davis. By the time the Democrats approached him in 2009, he'd racked up a good number of leadership opportunities: at the Mercy health care system first, and then as chief medical officer for Sacramento County, advising the county board of supervisors and helping manage the local public health system, and then at UC Davis' medical school.
The D.C. Democrats thought Bera's profile could win over voters in the inland Northern California district - a mix of young families, white- and blue-collar workers, seniors, and agricultural and tech interests that cleaves between Democrats and Republicans. As a doctor, Bera was an antidote to the professional politician so out of favor in recent years.
And his Indian-American roots augured well for his campaign warchest, according to one party aide with knowledge of leaders' thinking in 2010. The second generation of Indian-Americans is a growing force in political fundraising, particularly for candidates from its own community.
Sure enough, Bera proved a fundraising juggernaut, outraising the Republican incumbent, Dan Lungren, by almost $1 million.
...
But two years later, with President Barack Obama on the ticket, Bera rewarded his backers' instincts and narrowly won a rematch against Lungren, again outraising him significantly.
...
"Congressman Ami Bera is a loyal foot soldier when the President calls on him to oppose Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare," Ose complained earlier this year.
Now Rove's group, Crossroads GPS, is getting into the act, running television ads knocking Bera for voting against Republicans' Obamacare repeals. It's all part of a strategy to paint Bera as a big-spending liberal, out of step with his more moderate district.
But Bera insists he's a centrist. He's part of the Hill's "Problem Solvers," a bipartisan coalition that's premised, Bera says, on "the simple concept of saying let's just meet on a regular basis, let's have breakfast and get to know one another.
...
Gibson's proposal, which Bera co-sponsored: "By 2017, the Department of Defense and the VA have to have the same medical records system that's housed on a secure server on the cloud," enabling records to move between organizations seamlessly. The bill was attached to a larger piece of defense legislation and passed into law last year.
"So there are things that we can do if we work together, and I think that's been the rule in my office," Bera says.
Bera's proven that he can play the game. Now the question is whether he can stay in long enough to make it count.
