Ami Bera Headshot
Contribute to Ami Bera Congressman Ami Bera represents California's 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. The 7th district is located just east of California's capitol city, Sacramento, and is one of the most vibrant and ethnically diverse districts in the country. A first-generation American born and raised in California, Bera is guided by a desire to serve his community. It's that commitment to service that led him to become a doctor and later run for Congress. Congressman Bera grew up believing America was a land of opportunity, where if you worked hard and played by the rules, you could reach your full potential. He attended California's public schools from grammar school through medical school, earning both his B.S. and M.D. from the University of California, Irvine. He put himself through medical school, working part-time, taking advantage of federally-funded student loans, and graduating with less than $10,000 in debt. He credits much of his success to his country's investment in him, and he's working to ensure that we continue to invest in hard working Americans to keep the American Dream alive for the next generation. During Congressman Bera's twenty-year medical career, he worked to improve the availability, quality, and affordability of healthcare. After graduating from medical school in 1991, he did his residency in internal medicine at California Pacific Medical Center, eventually becoming chief resident. He went on to practice medicine in the Sacramento area, serving in various leadership roles for MedClinic Medical Group. Chief among his contributions was improving the clinical efficiency of the practice. He then served as medical director of care management for Mercy Healthcare, where he developed and implemented a comprehensive care management strategy for the seven-hospital system. Congressman Bera went on to put his medical experience to work for his community, serving Sacramento County as chief medical officer. In that role, he fought to reduce the cost of health care, create jobs, and deliver care to tens of thousands of Sacramento residents. He then moved into education, working as clinical professor of medicine and associate dean for admissions and outreach at University of California, Davis, where he taught the next generation of doctors. He also helped the University's student-run clinics find innovative ways to engage with the community and deliver care to those who needed it most. In Congress, Bera uses the skills he learned as a doctor to listen to the people of Sacramento County and to put their interests first. His top priority is to build an economy that works for the middle class by working with his colleagues regardless of party. That's why he's an original co-sponsor of No Budget No Pay, legislation that says if Congress doesn't do its job and work together to pass a responsible budget, members don't get paid. Congressman Bera is focused on creating jobs in Sacramento County by diversifying the region's economy. As a member of the House Committee on Science Space and Technology he is working to foster innovative industries that can bring jobs to the 7th district. On the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, he's developing relationships with fast-growing countries that are natural, growing markets for products, especially agricultural, that are made in the 7th district. Congressman Bera is a member of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans. He is also a member of the New Democrat Coalition, a group of legislators dedicated to maintaining America's standing as the world's strongest, most successful nation. His work with the New Dems is focused on finding ways to foster and harness American creativity and ingenuity so that it leads to new American jobs, greater economic prosperity, and a safer and more secure future for our country. Congressman Bera is the only Indian American currently serving in Congress. He has lived in Elk Grove, California for 16 years with his wife Janine, who is also a medical doctor.

Ami Bera with President Bill Clinton
Ami Bera with President Bill Clinton Ami Bera - The Doctor's New Oath Indian-Americans finally have a presence in the US Congress - Ami Bera, MD, is the new Congressman-Elect from California's 7th Congressional District. I had interviewed him some months back when he was running a hard-fought race against the incumbent Congressman Dan Lungren, who conceded today. "Career politicians have lined their pockets with special interest money and turned their backs on the values that made our country great-and now we're left to pay the price for their government malpractice," says Dr. Ami Bera. "This is why I am taking a new oath, like the one I took to become a Doctor, to put people first." In fact, on his Bera For Congress site, the good doctor takes some unusual pledges: Not to take a Congressional pension until Medicare and Social Security are secure for all Americans; To sponsor No Budget, No Pay-a law that says if Congress doesn't do their job and pass a responsible budget, they don't get paid. And he puts his foot down on traveling first class on the taxpayers' dollars. For Ami Bera, serving people has been an important part of who he is, and he is ever conscious of the need to give back to a country which embraced his immigrant family. While he grew up in California, his father crossed the oceans from a farming family in Rajkot near Ahmedabad, Gujarat for a higher education in America. "My father was the first in his family to go to high school," he says. Ami Bera with family Ami Bera with family After going to excellent public schools and medical school, Bera went on to became Chief Medical Officer of Sacramento County. He also was Dean of Admissions and a clinical professor in UC Davis, teaching future physicians to deliver healthcare to the community. He first ran for Congress in 2010, losing to his Republican opponent, incumbent Congressman Dan Lungren by a small margin. As The Wall Street Journal noted, " This year, Mr. Bera is considered a serious opponent. While Mr. Lungren's current district includes a huge swath of countryside and leans Republican, the redrawn congressional map puts him in a slightly Democratic-leaning district and gives Mr. Bera a shot at winning." Ami Bera with his constituents Ami Bera with his constituents He feels involvement in political life is the natural progression for the Indian-American community which now wants to give back to the US and have a seat at the table. Asked about his Indian heritage, Bera says it's been an asset: " I never run away from who I am, I actually run toward the values my family instilled in me." Ami Bera's wife Janine is also a physician and the two have been married for 21 years. They live in Elk Grove with their 14-year-old daughter who has also got involved in the political campaign, with her friends joining in to volunteer on the campaign trail. Bera wants to nurture the relationship between India and America, especially the economic aspect. He says, "I would be looking to strengthen it in a way that is beneficial to both. India still has a lot of infrastructure needs and there is a real benefit for American companies to work with India to modernize its economy." For Bera, it is a special joy to work with the many young Indian-Americans and Asians who volunteer in his campaign.
