Healthcare

I support Medicare for All, and if elected to Congress, I will support H.R. 676. Under this plan, Americans would no longer be burdened by high co-pays or deductibles and would have the freedom to choose their medical providers. Until we can enact a Medicare for All option, I will work to strengthen the Affordable Care Act (ACA). One option …

Women’s Healthcare & Rights

Healthcare Only a woman, her family, and her doctor should be able to decide what’s best for her health. I will always fight to protect women’s access to contraception and to make one’s own reproductive choices. I will fight against any legislation that allows insurance companies to encroach on these rights, or that discriminate against women. I will defend Planned …

Jobs and Economy

Georgia’s 11th district is blessed with vibrant industries. From the biotechnology, information technology and financial institutions of Cobb and Fulton counties, to the manufacturing, small businesses and family farms of Cherokee and Bartow Counties. There’s opportunity in this district, and it’s time we take advantage of it. I’m committed to attracting more hi-tech and manufacturing jobs, and I’ll fight to …

Living Wage

I believe in a living wage set at $15.00 per hour and indexed to inflation. Every two years, American workers should receive a raise based on the rate of inflation for the prior two years, five times per decade. These increases should be automatic, and the only way to stop the increase should be to require a 2/3 vote of …

Environment & Climate Change

Climate change is a real and growing threat to our economy, health, and wellbeing. We are the last generation that has a real opportunity to tackle this issue and solve it before it’s too late. I will fight for expanded environmental protections, higher fuel efficiency standards for cars, and expanded investments in renewable energy sources. I also strongly support our participation in …

National Security

We must protect our country and defend the values and rights that we hold dearly, and be unwavering in our fight against terrorism – foreign and domestic. America should exhaustively seek to resolve conflicts diplomatically when possible, and war should be a last resort. I oppose unnecessary military intervention overseas, and I oppose torture in all forms for detainees and …

LGBTQ+ Rights

It is time to make sure that everyone in our country is protected from discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. No one should have to fear losing their job or being denied access to things like healthcare, housing, or credit simply for being who they are and loving the person of their choosing. As a member of …

Protecting Consumers

Consumers deserve and expect their government to protect them from financial crime and harm. Too many lives are destroyed because of companies unfairly taking advantage of the elderly, students, working Americans, and veterans. This must stop, and that’s why I fully support the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB is a government watchdog agency tasked with ensuring that financial institutions and …

Disability Rights

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is under increasing attack under the Trump Administration. Legislation such as the recently introduced ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 seeks to strip the ADA of critical protections like ensuring businesses be handicap accessible by providing ramps over stairs, and doorways wide enough for wheelchairs. Equally troubling is the Trump Administration’s push to …

Voting Rights

Every American should have convenient, easy, and early access to voting. In Congress, I’ll fight for automatic voter registration for every American, so that upon turning 18 years old, you can cast your ballot without worrying about when and where to register. I’ll also push for a national standard for early voting, so working-class Americans can find the time to vote …
