Common Pain, Common Purpose, and Common Prosperity.
The big problems we face demand bold solutions. Recognizing the common pain afflicting our community, we must forge a common purpose. With equal measures of vision, courage, and determination we will gain common prosperity. This is how we will win our children the future they deserve.
Republican leadership in the Texas legislature refuses to accept Medicaid expansion. This is sheer dereliction of duty. It has left Texas with the highest rate of uninsured citizens in our Nation. Almost one in five people remain without adequate healthcare coverage. This is totally unacceptable. When elected I will immediately work to fix this.
Education should be a top priority. Our students deserve a world-class education. This costs money and those costs will likely increase every year. I will take a long view of education and view its funding as an investment rather than an expenditure. If we continue to invest, ALL Texans will benefit; not just a few.
To implement our plan to end unemployment and lift up working families, we must promote local living economies throughout our district. We must insist on a Living Wage. We must fight Leakonomics at every turn. We must embrace the three Golden rules that ensure local prosperity. We must promote a new generation of pollinator businesses. And we must liberate our fair share of the $15 trillion dollars of equity investment capital our local economies have every right to pursue.
When working families cannot earn a Living Wage, justice does not smile. When children in poor communities fail to get a decent education, justice does not smile. When the rich buy elections, justice does not smile. Whenever racism gets promoted by elected officials, justice does not smile. When communities of color suffer discrimination, justice does not smile. When LGBTQ citizens suffer discrimination, justice does not smile. When our government breaks its word to our Dreamers, justice does not smile. When corporations have more power than our communities, justice does not smile. When Global Warming threatens our children's future, justice does not smile. Yet justice must smile upon everyone. We all deserve the public face of Love.
