I am running for U.S. Congress in Arizona CD5.
I am running to help make the American Dream available to everyone. The American Dream is rooted in the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims that “all men are created equal with the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness”
People are not asking for a handout. They just want the opportunity to have a job that pays them a living wage, healthcare that is not just for the wealthy, education that provides for their future, affordable housing to raise their families and to be able to have money left over so they can invest in their retirement or take a vacation. I believe the American Dream is a reality with support from my platforms.
I support single-payer health coverage that provides comprehensive coverage for everyone. Nobody should ever have to make a decision if their loved one lives or dies because they don’t have health insurance. Nobody should go bankrupt or stay in a job they do not like just for health insurance or not take their medication because they cannot afford it.
We need to invest in our infrastructure. This includes: fixing our roads and bridges, supporting public transit options, investing in our waterway systems so we have safe drinking water, modernizing our dams and levees to improve safety and generate clean energy.
The only way to improve our future is through education. We should have debt-free tuition for Community Colleges and Universities. Students who still need help with books and housing can apply for a student loan. Student loans will not have an interest rate of more than 2%.
