Representation by us and for us
Super PACs take the power away from the people and give it to corporations and the wealthy. Private donations to politicians and campaigns should be banned and a clean public financing system must be implemented to end the takeover of our government by billionaires. Americans deserve free and fair elections . The Supreme Court has effectively legalized bribery. It’s time for an Article 5 convention to take our Democracy back from the oligarchy of the wealthy, and it's time to give power back to the people.
Create Medicare For All
The United States should catch up to every other modern nation and implement a single-payer, medicare-for-all system. There’s no reason we can’t be #1 in the world instead of #37.I am an ardent supporter of a true Single Payer Solution. All other first world, developed nations recognize healthcare as a human right and we should too. Placating half measures that don’t get the job done aren't good enough anymore. Access isn’t enough. Medicare For All today, Single Payer tomorrow.
Create A Just Justice System
We have created a system that favors the profit of private prisons over the treatment of persons. We must move toward a rehabilitative future, our approach must be to provide help, not cages, to people We must end the private and for-profit prison system that exists immediately. We must stop policing purity and start policing crimes. I support decriminalizing and marijuana and descheduling all other substances. Finally, we must end zero-tolerance policies in schools. There is an undeniable link between the school-to-prison pipeline and zero-tolerance policies.
Create free public higher education
In America, every child deserves a chance to succeed. K-12 education has been crucial for our country's past. K through College is crucial for its future. We must offer publicly funded vocational school and university in order to keep America a high-tech 21st Century society. We need a workforce that is diverse and filled with people who possess the skills necessary to compete in a global market. Our children must be prepared for this 21st Century with a firm background in science-backed education. Science based education has been the backbone of our education system, and on this point we must not deviate. Climate change, evolution, and other indisputable consensus in the scientific community must be treated in a serious way and be the foundation of our education curriculum.
Raise the Minimum Wage
This is about justice and basic human decency. If you work hard and you work full time you shouldn’t live in poverty. Furthermore, we support strong unions and collective bargaining.
