I believe that America’s biggest problems can be solved, but we must first end the gridlock that has paralyzed Washington and been so harmful to our economy. As your Congressperson, my top priority will be job creation. We cannot have a strong America without a strong middle class.
There are many ways the Federal government can accelerate job creation while creating a more stable and equitable economy. To do this, we need more investments in infrastructure, renewable energy and education, as well as fewer tax giveaways for the extremely wealthy and the fossil fuel industry.
We can have a stronger and more fair economy by raising the minimum wage, ensuring equal pay for equal work, mandating that contraception be covered through medical insurance, and banning employment discrimination.
We must protect Social Security, Medicare, Medi-Cal, and Covered California from those who are trying to shut down these essential programs.
Most Americans support these reasonable solutions. I invite you to learn more about the issues I will champion as your representative in Congress.
