Marc Friedenberg for Congress

Fighting For Our Future

The Latest News

Meet Marc

Marc Friedenberg is not a career politician. He’s a lawyer, an instructor at Penn State University, a devoted husband to his wife Becky, and a caring father to his two young daughters, Claire and Molly.

Marc made his name locally as an activist on healthcare; taking a stand when Congress—and the current representative for Pennsylvania’s fifth congressional district, Glenn Thompson—tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Marc created a group called PA-5 Truth and Action to lead the fight to save the ACA, contributing to the national effort to defeat the ACA repeal and help tens of thousands of Pennsylvania friends and neighbors keep their health insurance.

“I’m an expert in cyber-law, and in the midst of the Great Recession I prosecuted Wall Street banks that defrauded working men and women.”

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-5.


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 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.
