Dalip Singh Saund, who served three terms from 1957-1963.  In both 2012 and 2014, Bera won by 9,191 and 1,455 votes, respectively, after several days of counting.  ### Sat, 19 Nov 2016 00:05:10 +0000 annie@beraforcongress.com 958 at http://www.beraforcongress.com Dr. Ami Bera's Lead in CA-7 Grows to 4,802 Votes http://www.beraforcongress.com/press/dr-ami-beras-lead-ca-7-grows-4802-votes CARMICHAEL, CA - Dr. Ami Bera’s lead over Scott Jones in the race for California’s 7th Congressional District grew Wednesday to 4,802 votes following an update from the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters. Bera now leads his opponent Scott Jones by more than 2 percent, 119,448 votes to 114,646.Â
 Of the 58,166 ballots tallied Wednesday, 31,287 were from California’s 7th Congressional District.

...
Excluding over-votes and undervotes, 53.82% of the ballots in this latest update went for Bera compared to just 46.18% for Jones. "As our lead continues to grow, we’re in the strongest position we’ve ever been in. The reason these late ballots are coming in our favor is because of the incredible grassroots effort by our volunteers to get out the vote. The most important thing is for the Registrar of Voters and her hard-working team to continue to do their jobs and count every vote," said Rep. Ami Bera.  In 2012, Bera led Republican Dan Lungren by 184 votes the morning after election day, and his lead eventually grew to 9,191 votes. In 2014, Bera was down by more than 3,000 votes on election night, and he came back to win by 1,455 votes. The next update from the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters will be Friday, Nov. 18 at 3:00 p.m. Â

Walker, Local 1000 President. “His support for a livable wage, affordable higher education, and stronger Social Security and Medicare benefits demonstrate his commitment to help working families get ahead.â€� Local 1000’s members contribute nearly $6 billion to California’s economy, and work at over 1400 workplaces across the country. “I’m proud to have the endorsement of California's largest public sector union, and the tens of thousands of workers and their families that SEIU fights for,â€� said Dr. Ami Bera. “If you work hard, you should be able to get ahead, and to make that opportunity a reality for every American, we need to protect Social Security and Medicare, and address the cost of education.â€� Since being elected, Bera stood up to efforts to privatize Social Security and Medicare, and his office has helped thousands of residents, including veterans and seniors, work through the backlog to recover millions of dollars in benefits they’d earned. Â
...
Bera believes that women’s equality, equal pay for equal work, and access to health care are fundamental rights. As a physician, Bera understands that a woman’s decisions about her health care should be between her and her doctor and that it is wrong for politicians to threaten women’s healthcare to score political points. He was named Planned Parenthood’s 2015 National Women’s Health Champion for his vision, leadership, and integrity in advancing women’s reproductive care. Since being elected, Dr. Bera has consistently stood up to those in Congress who have repeatedly wasted time and taxpayer money to deny coverage for basic women’s health care like birth control. Instead, Dr. Bera  knows that preventative care can save lives and millions of dollars, which is why he has vowed to continue fighting to support organizations like Planned Parenthood who provide critical services, life-saving services like family planning and counseling, birth control, screenings for cancer, and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections Dr. Bera knows that women’s health begins with women’s safety. He took a stand for women experiencing violence by voting to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. He’s fought to secure funding for groups that help victims of domestic violence get services to help keep them safe and punish their abusers.
...
Bera has shown his commitment to moving our country forward towards a clean energy future. He knows that the hard work and action we take today will help keep our air and water safe and healthy for future generations. Growing a new energy economy and training the workforce to implement and support it is vital to the well-being of our communities," said Barbara Leary, Chair of the Sacramento Group, Sierra Club. Bera stood up to efforts that would have weakened our nation’s clean air standards, and fought for scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to get the support they need to study climate science and climate change. By contrast, Bera’s opponent, Scott Jones, told reporters “I just don’t know� when he was asked if he believed that humans contributed to climate change. “Climate change is real, and anyone that questions the science behind it is doing a disservice to the debate on how to address it moving forward,� said Rep. Ami Bera. “Not only do we need to address climate change as a national security issue, but we also have to deal with it in order to protect California’s economy. I’m proud to earn the Sierra Club’s endorsement as I work to protect our state’s natural resources, create new energy jobs, and grow our economy.� Bera, who is a member of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, has taken a firm stand on the science of climate change, and supported tax credits that promote innovation and development in wind, solar, and other clean energy technologies.  ###
...
Bera believes that the mistreatment of veterans is a national tragedy, not to mention immoral and un-American. In Washington, Dr. Bera has worked across party lines to get more medical staff into the VA system so that no veteran has to wait for months on end for the care they need. As a doctor who has cared for veterans in VA hospitals, Dr. Bera is fighting for the thousands of veterans in our community who have defended our nation. His office has helped hundreds of veterans in Sacramento County work through the backlog and complicated bureaucracy to return thousands of dollars in earned benefits, and the medical care they deserve. Dr. Bera has a record of fighting on behalf of our men and women in uniform: Bera voted for a pay raise for the men and women who serve our country. As the Co-Chair of the No Labels Problem Solvers Caucus, Dr. Bera helped introduce the 21st Century Health Care for Heroes Act, which is now law, to implement a user friendly, electronic record system for service members and veterans to streamline their access to health records. Representative Bera introduced legislation to reform intake and management for patients at VA hospitals after the preventable death of a Vietnam veteran at Mather VA Hospital in Sacramento County. Dr. Bera also called for the federal investigation into the tragedy. Helping hundreds get the earned benefits and medical care they’ve earned.  Â

Congressman Bera has previously urged the FDA to regulate the prices of life-saving drugs.

...
On August 25th, 2016, Congressman Ami Bera, M.D. (CA-7) called on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to take immediate action to make lower cost alternatives available in response to exorbitantly priced EpiPens from the drug manufacturer Mylan. Currently, EpiPens have a virtual monopoly on the market for emergency allergy attack treatment. In the letter, Congressman Bera asks the FDA to address processes that may limit competition and allow some companies to drastically increase prices. Today, Mylan announced they would offer additional coupons for EpiPens, but have not addressed the underlying cost.
"As a doctor, I know that in the case of an allergic reaction no time can be wasted and we can't allow anything to stand in the way of immediate access to epinephrine. said Bera. "$600 for an EpiPen is outrageous, and Mylan must be held accountable for their pricing on a life-saving drug. That's why I'm calling on the FDA to make sure that families have other more affordable and safe options to EpiPens so that no one needs to make a choice between paying their bills or having a life-saving drug."
Congressman Bera has previously urged the FDA to regulate the prices of life-saving drugs.
