When I’m campaigning and meet people, one of the first questions I’m usually asked is, “So, why do you want to be in Congress?” In the beginning I thought they were really asking, “Why would you subject yourself to this?!”, but as time’s gone by, I’ve started to understand the question a little differently.

Watch this video. When you're done, here are the two pages I want you to visit:

Meet Marc

Marc Friedenberg is not a career politician. He’s an instructor at Penn State’s College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST), a devoted husband to his wife Becky, and a caring father to his two young daughters, Claire and Molly. He’s also a lawyer, and before he returned to the classroom as an educator, he sued the big Wall Street banks that caused the financial crisis, using his expertise with technology to prove that they had committed fraud.

Marc made his name locally as a healthcare activist. He took a stand when Tom Marino and the rest of our corrupt Congress tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would have thrown tens of thousands of our friends and neighbors off their health insurance in exchange for tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy and fatter profits for health insurance companies. Marc created a group called PA-5 Truth and Action, leading the charge locally as part of the successful national effort to defeat the ACA repeal. Now he’s ready to take the fight for justice to Washington for all of us.

“Healthcare is a human right. You deserve a Congressman who will fight for your family’s health, not corporate profits or a personal payday.”

Focused on Pennsylvania—not Washington.


Marc supports the Fight for $15. He supports union workers fight against so-called “right-to-work” laws, and will invest federal funds in infrastructure projects like rural broadband and solar energy in PA-12.


Marc will make investing federal money into public education a top priority, especially in our rural areas, and secure federal funding for our district’s higher education system, including our vocational and community college.


Marc supports a Medicare-for-all, single-payer national health insurance system. He will invest federal resources to fight the opioid crisis in our district and strengthen our rural community health centers.


Marc believes that clean air and water are a right for all human beings, not a privilege for the rich. Marc wants to invest in clean energy, like wind and solar and put people to work building and maintaining it.
