To promote social and racial justice in our country, we must face it honestly. I stand with peaceful protestors who are forcing us to confront these issues and have tough conversations we’ve been avoiding. We also need to enact legislative change. I voted for the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which takes steps to reduce the use of excessive force by police, hold law enforcement officers accountable, and demilitarize police forces. I believe we must prioritize programs and policies that actually reduce crime, not tanks in streets that merely escalate tensions.
I fully support the restoration of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). America was built on the promise of equal participation. That’s why I voted for the Voting Rights Advancement Act, to restore key provisions of the VRA and to give the federal government authority to hold states accountable for voting rights violations. I believe no one should ever have to experience voter discrimination tactics. We need to take action to ensure that all Americans – no matter who they are or where they live – have access to the ballot box and can exercise their right to vote.
Climate change is a global threat, impacting our food production, transportation, housing, immigration and national security. Urgent action is needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create a resilient, low carbon economy. We should invest in the research and development of technologies that can reduce emissions in line with what science demands. We must enact policies that will decarbonize our power and transportation sectors, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and account for the costs of carbon pollution on society. A carbon price would be an effective policy to start this transition.
Healthcare is a human right. I was proud to vote for the Affordable Care Act as one of my earliest votes in Congress. While it’s clear the ACA has made tremendous strides in improving U.S. healthcare, especially in helping to drive down the uninsured rate, coverage for pre-existing conditions, and expanding preventative care, COVID-19 has exposed far too much inequity in the system. I support the creation of a national public option, a government run and funded plan that will increase competition, expanded marketplace subsidies and Medicare buy-in plans so we can achieve universal healthcare.
