Our District leads the entire nation in number of uninsured.
With District average individual income of about $18,000 per year, healthcare is never “affordable".
As your U.S. House Representative, I will fight to ensure continued emergency care access and healthcare options for our lowest income citizens while protecting the free-market economy.
U.S. JUSTICE SYSTEM
Breakdowns in the U.S. justice system are numerous creating inequality in the distribution of justice. As your U.S. House Representative, I will propose and/or endorse administrative support for innocence projects and decriminalization where inequitable criminal justice analysis exists.
60% of Americans earn less than $40,000 per year. In the District, the average individual income is around $18,000 per year.
Minority (ie. Hispanic, African American) households are earning over 41% LESS than White households. I will advocate for wealth distribution equality. I support a federal minimum wage increase although only a temporary solution and will advocate for sustainable job creation solutions.
America is in debt. I shall work to balance our budget.
Millions of homeless citizens of the United States live on the streets, in shelters, and in homes of another family.
I will work to introduce legislation that will help to eliminate street-dwelling homelessness in the United States.
I am competent regarding our housing market.
The cost of housing in the District and U.S. continues to consume disproportionate percentages of household income and often result in homelessness for full-time workers. As your U.S. House Representative, I will address this crisis by introducing and supporting legislation that calibrates the economy resulting in lower housing cost options for Americans.
