WHAT WE STAND FOR
The American healthcare system is often rated as having one of, if not the, worst healthcare systems in the industrialized world. Every study and every rating points to one solution; as such, I will fight to pass Medicare for All through the House of Representatives and ensure every American has access to the healthcare they need.
Between the increasing costs of living and stagnant wages, it is increasingly difficult to afford housing. I intend to solve this crisis by proposing legislation based on Vienna’s social housing program which was implemented a century ago and is still in place today, making Vienna one of the most affordable cities in Europe.
CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION
The record-breaking droughts, heat waves, and fires we face in California every year are clear signs of the destruction climate change is causing, and we need to address it before it’s too late. This is why I support the Green New Deal – it would comprehensively address the causes of climate change, rebuild our infrastructure, and create millions of jobs for Americans in the process.
The push to ensure Americans receive higher education, coinciding with tuition fees skyrocketing to where they are today, has left millions of Americans in massive amounts of debt. To resolve this crisis and the cause of it, I support forgiving student debt and instituting free tuition for all public universities, community colleges, and public trade schools.
UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME
Universal Basic Income (or UBI) is a proposal to ensure that every American has some form of income. It has been implemented in several different countries and areas of the United States, and results have been overwhelmingly positive. If elected I will fight for a national UBI to ensure every American can afford their basic necessities.
I recognize both the necessity of law enforcement as well as the harm the police force in their current iteration have done to Americans, especially Americans of color. As such, I believe that we need to
institute a wide variety of reforms to ensure that our communities are safe and able to trust our law enforcement once again.
I believe there is both a moral and economic obligation to ensure that descendants of former slaves receive the monetary equivalent to the 40 acres and a mule as that was promised to their formerly enslaved ancestors near the end of the Civil War.
We’d love to hear from you!
