In order to provide comprehensive care and lower our expenditures on healthcare costs we must ultimately move away from our private health insurance and employer-based system to a single-payer (Federal Government) system. This will reduce administrative billing waste and profits while maximally increasing quality, accessibility, efficiency, and affordability. The nature of our private market system has historically proven that it cannot, and will not adequately cover all of our citizens while containing costs.
The foundation of our society lies in the education of our future generations. Our children deserve access to quality education at an early age. Currently, our educational system sets students up for failure rather than success. Overcrowded schools, expensive childcare and a lack of affordable higher education are leaving American families without a quality education.
I’m running in order to save our environment, because science says it needs saving. I’m running because congress needs someone who knows how to protect our fields, streams, and backyards from pollutants and toxic industry practices. We need an advocate for our children and for preventative long term solutions that look beyond the next election cycle.
