on the Issues

 

fixing The rigged economy   

We need a representative who will stand up for us against corporate bullies and wealthy interests. We must protect our economic and political liberty, bust up monopolies and “too big to fail” firms, and get big money out of politics. That means overturning Citizens United and bringing back trust-busting.

We need an economy that works for everyone and not just the people at the top. 


Fighting Climate change

Science tells us that human-caused climate change is real. We must get our carbon emissions down to net zero to preserve a livable climate for everyone, not just those betting that their wealth will let them weather the storm.  

We should implement a carbon fee and dividend system to spur innovation and slow emissions, but that's not enough. We need a Marshall-Plan-style program to electrify our energy system using solar and wind power, strong efficiency standards, and regulations to cram down carbon emissions in time to avoid catastrophic climate change.

Health Care is a human right 

We must implement Medicare for All because health care is a right, and it shouldn't be treated like a privilege for the wealthy. Corporate bullies have stood in the way of a health care system that works for all Americans. Our district has 83,000 people without health insurance--that's unacceptable. We must stop Republican plans to kick more people off of health care, then go on offense to get Medicare for All passed. 


combating racism  

Stop the assault on communities of color, which includes ending mass incarceration, the war on drugs, and mass deportation. Structural racism and right-wing scaremongering has corroded the American Dream for too many, for too long.  


act on automation

We must come to grips with the real implications of the coming deep automation of our economy so that mass automation doesn’t destroy the income of millions of Americans.               


Women Deserve respect

American women should know that they will receive equal pay on the job, as well as paid maternity leave should they choose to have a child. They should also be afforded the respect of having control of their own bodies, and their reproductive rights should be safe from right wing attacks on their freedom. 


Living wage now

Raise the minimum wage to $15/hour so people who work full-time can afford a life with dignity. If you work 40 hours a week then you should not live in poverty. We need to fight for a living wage for all. Fight for 15!           


Tuition-free college

Make public colleges and universities free to attend and fund quality K-12 education where local schools, not standardized testing companies, shape our children’s destinies.


LGBTQIA rights 

We must stand with our LGBTQIA neighbors against the right-wing attack on their rights and relationships. Marriage equality and respect in the workplace are non-negotiable.
