My Top 3 Priorities

  • Every American should have affordable health care. I will stand with my Democratic colleagues in support of pre-existing condition coverage, will oppose arbitrary insurance cancellation, and will press for negotiated drug prices for every federal he
  • Every hard-working family should be able to buy a home, send their children to college, and save for retirement. I will aggressively fight for a living wage for all Americans.
  • When America makes a promise, America keeps that promise. Protecting and strengthening Social Security and Medicare to preserve a dignified retirement for all Americans is one of my top priorities.
