It’s critical that we refill our national protective equipment stockpile and find a vaccine to stop the spread of the ongoing pandemic. We must communicate information quickly and trust science to accurately alert vulnerable populations like seniors and immunocompromised individuals. It’s also essential that we rebuild our economy to protect our small business owners and workers from financial instability.
I’m advancing high-quality trade deals that level the international playing field and promote West Virginia’s exports to create jobs and grow our economy, and implementing a Congressional Energy Export Caucus. I support strengthening our borders to keep illegal drugs out of our country. We must conserve our state’s natural beauty and work to promote our outdoor tourism industry.
The War on Coal devastated our energy economy and left many people unemployed and hopeless. I am working to cut the overburdensome regulations that make it difficult to do business in our state, so we can continue to power the country and the world with West Virginia coal, oil, and gas, while also protecting our environment for future generations.
I support initiatives that increase telehealth services and improve healthcare access in our rural communities. We must repeal policies that make healthcare less affordable and reduce the quality of care. We need to protect Medicare for those who need it, cover preexisting conditions, lower prescription drug pricing, and combat the opioid epidemic by investing in rehabilitation and recovery.
Continuing to overhaul our voter registration database to remove deceased and inactive voters so our elections can more accurately represent the voters’ decisions. We must also install safe and responsible protective equipment at our polling places so that people have the confidence to vote in-person when possible. Our country clerks do a terrific job and we must support their efforts.
I would recommend that we fund a task force to watch for potential pandemics to help contain them. I would recommend that we have a supply of protective equipment, open more healthcare facilities and train more doctors so our hospitals aren't overwhelmed. I would have funds in place to ensure that we can get as much testing as possible earlier.
Congress should make sure that any trade deals protect American workers and American small businesses. We should pass immigration reform to allow people to come here to work legally, and treat immigrants with dignity. The United States should take action on climate change and protect our water for the health of our communities and futures of our children.
No I do not. We need to protect our air and water for the health and wellbeing of our children, families, and communities. I know that we can have a strong economy and plenty of jobs without polluting our air and water.
I support universal healthcare. I believe that healthcare is a human right and no one should die because they couldn't afford to see a doctor or pay for prescriptions. A universal healthcare system would ensure that we have a healthier society and that we are better able to handle a public health crisis like a pandemic.
Everyone should automatically be registered to vote. Election day should be a national holiday so that everyone has the opportunity to vote, and no one has to take off work. Additionally everyone should automatically be sent a mail-in ballot to make voting safer for all.
