Right now we need relief like the HEROES Act, which has been languishing on my opponent’s desk for months. To prepare for future pandemics, we should draw on our current experience to plan coordination of supply chains, create guidelines for what equipment (like PPE) should be stockpiled, and streamline the process for approving tests during public health emergencies.
Our role should be creating the same relationship we strive to have with neighbors at home: we want a neighborhood of justice, compassion, and respect. It’s not our place to judge private affairs as long as everyone is safe. And we’ll lend a hand to help feed hungry kids or less fortunate neighbors, if our own family is well-fed.
First, let’s not call them “regulations.” They are protections. Second, no one should remove the protections and safeguards that keep your family safe. The only reason this happens is that our corrupt politicians are for-sale to the highest bidder. It’s their job to protect us, but they’re more interested in keeping their jobs than doing their jobs.
I support Medicare for All. Anyone who wants something incremental is someone like Capito who has never watched a loved one suffer without proper healthcare, or someone who's never been worried about being unable to afford healthcare for themselves.
We need automatic voter registration, universal vote-by-mail, and we should make Election Day a national holiday. If we care about democracy, we need to fight to make sure everyone can participate in it.
