Are you disgusted with the complete lack of morality and values shown by this GOP dominated government? Have you realized that we the people are of no concern to them? Does it infuriate you that our elected representatives work strictly for the top 1% and their special interest groups? The only way to reverse our government’s disastrous course is to remove the GOP majority in Congress. Nevada House District 3 is open for 2018. This is a crucial seat. We must keep it Democratic. I want the United States to get back to being a democracy, not an oligarchy. If you agree, then I ask you to join me. I have no rich donors, I do not come from a long line of politicians, and I am not beholden to any special interests. It‘s time to fight. The future of this country and our people are at stake.
From Love For Nevada:
Healthcare: Right of the People
I’m known for being direct, so let me be clear: Healthcare is a right of the people. My number one concern is saving healthcare in the United States. As an insurance agent, I have helped hundreds of Nevadans both prior to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), and now during the ACA era. As a self-employed person for 16 years, I buy my family’s policy in the individual marketplace. I know more about health insurance than most of our politicians. It’s frightening when I watch interviews with our legislators. They clearly do not understand the issue. We are talking about people’s lives, not to mention the economic impact of damaging an industry that makes up 20% of the entire national economy. I can do better.
Economy: Stop Funding Endless Wars. Invest in Our People
Good jobs have been disappearing for decades. In their place, low paying, service industry jobs have become the norm. This is getting worse by the day. As we currently sit, retail jobs are being lost rapidly. Whether due to automation or just changing buying patterns, this is a fact. What we need is a New, New Deal. Anyone can see that our infrastructure is in terrible shape. Our leaders have lacked the courage to address it. As voters, we have not demanded that they do so. It is time to reallocate our tax revenues to improving our roads, bridges, airports, and power grids. These projects will require skilled tradesmen who will earn a decent salary.
Environment: Save Our Planet
The current administration has declared war on the earth. They deny climate change. They weaken clean water laws. They sell off our best public lands. They appoint an EPA director who wants to abolish the agency altogether. Clearly they have decided to exploit the land for its resources without any regard for the damage being done. It’s all about their money. How immoral must one be to show no concern for the children of the future? They are willing to jeopardize our clean air and water so a handful of billionaires can get even richer. How is that a government serving the people? Protecting our planet must be a priority. A balance between commerce and conservation can be achieved if we make the right choices.
