I believe a single payer healthcare program would best suit the needs of Americans.   It would take the power away from the healthcare companies and put the decision making in the hands of the individual and the doctor.  

I believe that men and women should receive equal pay for equal work.

I believe that diversity makes us great.   I welcome and respect people of different backgrounds.

I believe in investing in our children.   Providing them with a positive foundation through early intervention and universal pre-k are essential steps in equipping our children for successful adults.

I believe in paying hardworking people a livable wage.
