My number one priority is to fix the upside-down fiscal policy that has prevented our state from keeping up with growth in good times threatens to destroy us in times of crisis. Fiscal policy is truly the measure of our values - the way in which we generate revenue and the way in which we distribute resources. The combination of TABOR, the Gallagher Amendment and many other tax giveaways to special interests have devastated our education budget, prevented us from properly funding transportation, hamstrung our ability to respond to community needs and disallowed us to save for a rainy day. And figuratively speaking, it is pouring buckets now. This pandemic is our 100 year storm, and we've got to change course to avoid the devastation that is coming our way. I support a fair tax system that ensures the wealthiest Coloradans are paying their fair share.
The economic crisis requires a just and equitable response that prioritizes health, safety and the best use of science. As we work through this pandemic, we attempt to rebuild our economy and our lives, while ensuring we prioritize those who are most vulnerable to disease and financial collapse. The COVID-19 crisis has touched all aspects of our society, and we know that those who were already living on the margins are sinking further into despair. At the legislature we will address housing, healthcare and insurance, worker protections, and financial instability. We are working to protect our public education system from as much loss as possible. And I will fight for a progressive income tax structure to ensure that the wealthiest among us are paying their fair share so that Colorado has the resources it needs to move our state forward.
