October marks the death of yet another Congressmember. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) passed away earlier this month from various health complications at 68. Now, Former Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) also went beyond the grave at age 66.
Kay ran a successful campaign against former Republican Senator Elizabeth Dole in 2009 before losing to another Republican, Thom Tillis, in 2014. One of her major contributions to American legislation was her support of Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
There were exactly 60 votes for the Affordable Care Act. There were exactly 60 for Dodd-Frank.
Last decade would have been a lot different if Kay Hagan had not been in the U.S. Senate.

Even though she supported some policies that worked against the interests of most citizens, Hagan undoubtedly served America with her own sense of patriotism.
The former senator passed away from Powassan virus, which is a type of infection transmitted through ticks. Please join us in sending our thoughts and prayers to her loved ones. Although Hagan was on the other side of the aisle, she still wanted a better America for everyone.
