My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ending childhood poverty, including by making the expanded Child Tax Credit permanent.
  • Investing in the care economy -- making child care more affordable and accessible for families and making sure care workers are paid what they deserve.
  • Rebalancing our defense budget to invest in diplomacy and to better support the needs of service members and their families.
