"Nabilah Islam, a progressive Democrat running for Congress in Georgia’s 7th district, is one of more than 100,000 people in her community who lack health insurance—and she is preparing to ask the Federal Election Commission to to allow more working-class candidates like her to run for office by sanctioning the use of campaign funds to pay for personal health insurance.

The daughter of working-class immigrants from Bangladesh, Islam is a political organizer running in the 7th district’s Democratic primary on a platform pushing for Medicare for All, reproductive justice, a Green New Deal, and other bold initiatives.

"If there are more Nabilahs in Congress, I assure you, things like Medicare-for-all, things like a living wage, $15 an hour, would just be a no-brainer."

—Nabilah IslamHer bid to represent her community on Capitol Hill, however, has forced her to place her $30,000 in student loans in forbearance and forgo the health insurance policy she had to avoid the $120 monthly premium.

"Because of the financial impediments, many working people choose not to run for office, and women and people of color are at an even greater disadvantage due to wage and wealth gaps," Islam wrote in her FEC filing (pdf), which she plans to submit next Monday. "The ability to use campaign funds to pay for health insurance would be a small step towards lowering the barriers for working class people who are considering running for office.”"
