▪️ Medicare for All: Regardless of your personal politics, your personal health should be a national priority. To put things in perspective, Americans paid $3.4 trillion for healthcare last year and $3.5 trillion in taxes to the federal government. So if you hate taxes, you should hate private healthcare too. An alarming portion of our private healthcare payments go to administration rather than actual care. By contrast, the overhead charge for Medicare is less than 2 percent. I’ve never met a person who hates having Medicare.

The bottom line: We pay more than any developed nation on earth and still don’t insure everyone — it’s time we control costs with a system that serves patients instead of corporate interests.

▪️ Apprenticeship for All: The average apprentice earns $70,000 a year — double the median individual income in America. Apprenticeships allow workers to learn-and earn at the same time, giving them the financial freedom to either pursue higher positions in their industry or higher education. There are 6 million job vacancies in America, including 360,000 in manufacturing and 200,000 in construction. If elected, I’ll work with unions and colleges on legislation that brings job training programs to our district in traditional sectors as well as in high growth-sectors including healthcare, financial services, and high-tech.

▪️ Justice for All: Your zip code or place of birth shouldn’t determine your destiny. Justice is simple and fair: If you’re willing to work hard, contribute your fair share and play by the rules, then you‘ve earned a life filled with American possibilities.

Unfortunately, the rules are stacked against the poor in rural and urban areas, against minorities and women. The most alarming aspect of our criminal justice system today is not how many people have broken the law, but how many laws have broken people.

It’s time we level the playing field, starting by cracking down on for-profit prisons and victimless crimes, treating drug addiction as a mental health crisis instead of a criminal justice issue, and creating a viable pathway to earned citizenship instead of an inevitable pathway to crime. We are a nation of laws, but also a nation of broad shoulders and big hearts. As citizens, there is no greater act of patriotism than challenging ourselves and our laws. That’s what built the greatest nation on earth, and the only way America will align more closely with its highest ideals in the generations to come.

▪️ Community Choice for All: Clean and simple, affordable and inevitable. We are merely borrowing this planet from our children. It’s times we invest in their futures by investing in local innovation: businesses that are developing the next generation of solar, wind, geothermal and molten salt generated energy. Let’s become entirely energy-independent in the next decade and protect the environment for the next wave of Americans.
