I have stood up to and defeated, bullies all my life, and the biggest bullies in the world are corrupt governments and corporations that put profits over people. My experiences as a veteran and civil rights advocate prepared me to safeguard your civil liberties in Congress. Together we will secure healthcare as a human right through Medicare for All, end mass incarceration, build a renewable energy economy, and ensure the right to an education with debt-free public college. I am a patriot and will always put people over politics and profits.
RIchardson is running on Brand New Congress’ Platform which includes:
*We believe healthcare is a right for ALL people, regardless of their ability to pay. Nobody should go without proper medical care in such a prosperous country.
*Our tax system should be structured so as to require everyone, especially corporations, to pay their fair share. Tax revenue is what we use to get things done for the public benefit, and it’s time corporations give back to the country that has helped them to thrive.
*The United States has made the business of other countries its business for way too long, all in the name of promoting democracy and security. The result of our government’s actions has often been the opposite. It’s time we reorient our foreign policy to include more cooperation, and stop acting like the world’s police.
*The influence of money in politics has moved our government away from a democracy and towards a plutocracy. In order to create a government that is truly accountable to the people rather than corporate interests, we need legislation that gets money out of politics once and for all.
