My Top 3 Priorities

  • Make wealthy corporations pay their fair share of taxes while reducing the tax burden of poor working class people.
  • Use taxes to help meet peoples' needs and rights - free medical care for all, free education for all, affordable housing and food, livable incomes instead of subsidizing rich corporations - big oil companies, big agribusinesses, and big banks
  • Forgive student loan debts and stop attacks on public employee pensions.
