We should always debate and consider legislation that ensures the healthcare is right for all Americans. We should not stop until as one of the richest nation we do not have people dying because they can not afford treatment or health insurance.
I would emphasize all of those. We have to address the fact that many households are not earning a livable wage. Increase in wages is being offset by a bigger increase in inflation. This unbalanced relationship is killing the working and middle class.
Fair and equal pay is the first step to neutralizing inequalities. Protecting Civil Rights is also a priority.
The federal government should hold states accountable to their public education funding systems. They should also audit the public education funding for each state to make sure monies are being spent on the school, child, teacher and not on unnecessary expenses.
It is important. The amount of money a person or corporation can pay should not dictate the policies of an elected official adopts. The policies of an elected official should always reflect the needs and concerns of the population they are elected to serve. You learn those policies by listening to the constituents, not by catering to whoever fills your pocketbook.
We need to support and build a secure national cyber guard team to protect all online registrations and voting. We need to make sure all states are using up-to-date systems.
We have a problem with gun violence in this country. It has become an epidemic. There are many factors that contribute to this problem: lack of behavioral health care, access to multi-causality weapons, and lack of follow-up on warning signs. We have to address each of these through legislation because the problem is not going to fix itself.
