Let's commit, once and for all, to a single payer system, the only proven way to achieve universal access to the best quality healthcare at the lowest cost. A Medicare for All insurance fund just pays the bills, letting the healthcare professionals make the medical decisions. Supported by a majority of Americans and now a majority of doctors, single payer makes good economic sense, and it's the right thing to do. It is the most effective and efficient way to guarantee healthcare as a right to all. Read more.
Let's make sure that working Americans make a fair and decent living. An Economy for All reduces inequality by giving the people a long overdue raise. I support a $15 minimum wage and strong unions with collective bargaining power. Let's put an end to corporate welfare and demand that billionaires and corporations pay their fair share. We must protect Social Security and Medicare, because the people have earned these benefits and deserve a good retirement and good health care.
Let’s use our resources to rebuild America putting millions of Americans to work earning good wages and reviving the middle class. A New Deal 2.0 provides opportunity by investing heavily in our people and our crumbling infrastructure. We must reallocate resources to strengthen public education and develop training for the jobs of the future. Lets make Nevada a national leader in high-speed transportation and clean energy. Let's be smart and prepare for climate change.
Let's stand together to vigorously defend women’s reproductive rights and access to family planning. We must consolidate the gains of the LGBTQIA community whose rights are threatened by the current administration. I vow to close the gender pay gap and have zero tolerance for sexual harassment.
Let's reduce the influence and power of the wealthy and corporations that have corrupted our politics. The repeal of Citizens United must be a part of broader campaign finance reform to get money out of politics. We must also stop the GOP on gerrymandering and their attempts at voting rights suppression.
Let's preserve our natural wonders and life-sustaining clean air and water. The GOP Administration has declared war on the climate science and the federal agencies that keep us safe. Good government protects its people, ensures clean air and water, and preserves public lands.
Let's develop a comprehensive plan that guides children from pre-K to high school to college or trade school. Let's start by instituting universal pre-K, offering new forms of vocational training, and making high-quality higher education available to all. Americans should be able to attend college or trade school without being chained to a lifetime of student debt. I advocate making public education affordable to all income groups and fixing our nation’s for-profit student loan system.
Let's embrace the diversity that is one of our greatest strengths. Immigrants contribute to the overall health of the economy and reform should be common sense and comprehensive with a clear path to citizenship.
Let's give veterans the care they deserve. Let’s also end the raid on the treasury to support never-ending wars and private contracting.
Let's save lives by standing up to the NRA and approaching gun violence as a public health issue, while still respecting the Second Amendment. Thoughts and prayers are not enough to fix a problem that kills Americans every single day. An overwhelming majority of Americans agree on basic safety measures to reduce deaths from guns.
