STANCE ON ISSUES

01.
Image
HEALTHCARE
Healthcare should be universal to all people.
People should not have to choose to not go to a hospital or doctor because the medical provider won’t take their insurance or because they can’t afford insurance at all.
03.

Income Inequality
Taxing people according to their income.
We must increase the New Jersey minimum wage from $8.60 to $12 an hour on big corporations, but not for small businesses.

The Environment
Climate Change is the greatest threat to our nation and this world.
The Fossil Fuel lobbyists buy candidates and are the ones who are large factors for putting politicians who are bought into office.

LGBTIQ Equality
I firmly support any bill that prohibits discrimination against LGBTIQ people.
Discriminating against anyone in the areas of employment, housing, social, economic or any forms are absolutely unacceptable

Social Security
Seniors need to feel secure that they won’t fall into poverty.
Seniors in this country have been paying taxes far longer than the rest of the population and we need a system that stands by them as they age. People didn’t work their whole lives, having hundreds of dollars taken out from bi- weekly checks to then turn around and not be supported.

Immigration
America is the greatest nation in the world because of its diversity.
We are a country that believes in supporting people, but not abusing the system.

EDUCATION
Free tuition needs to be mandatory .
I support introducing a bill that no longer allows the federal government to take advantage.
04.
Image
Corporate Donations
No candidate should receive donations from corporations.
The rich control the politics in our country because our laws allow them to do so.
06.
Image
Racial Justice
Our elected officials are using race to drive a wedge between us as citizens .
Our prison systems are a large corporation run like a hotel where they want to keep the occupancy full at all times.
08.

VETERANS
We need to improve the processing of Veterans’ compensation.
As the Director of the Services to the Armed Forces program for the Red Cross, I supported Veterans, their family members, active duty military soldiers and their families.

Fighting for Disability Rights
We must expand the social safety net.
At a time when millions of disabled Americans are struggling economically, we cannot turn our backs on those who are disabled.
