Congressman Brad Sherman Endorses Dr. Asif Mahmood for Insurance Commissioner

“Dr. Asif Mahmood has worked tirelessly his whole career making sure that everyone receives the medical care they need. I’m happy to endorse him in this race.” – Congressman Brad Sherman

Today Congressman Brad Sherman announced his endorsement of Dr. Asif Mahmood in his race for Insurance Commissioner of California.

“Dr. Asif Mahmood has worked tirelessly his whole career making sure that everyone receives the medical care they need,” said Congressman Sherman. “While the Republicans in Congress try to take away healthcare, I know that Dr. Mahmood will protect the Affordable Care Act and lead the fight for universal healthcare here in California. I’m happy to endorse him in this race.”

Dr. Mahmood has worked as a doctor of internal medicine for almost two decades, serving countless patients in his practice and at free clinics. After seeing the struggle of so many Californians who are unable to afford care, Dr. Mahmood made it a rule in his hospital practice — if a patient doesn’t have insurance, his office won’t ask for payment.

He supports a Medicare for All system, and believes we need to protect the Affordable Care Act from Donald Trump’s attacks. He believes health care is a human right, and he will fight to broaden our limited definition of what healthcare includes: women’s health care, mental health care, and children’s health care.
