Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Sacar el dinero de la política es mi prioridad n.° 1 (revocar Citizens United y pasar al financiamiento público de las elecciones + Las empresas/sindicatos no son el pueblo + El dinero no es discurso).
  • Abordar nuestra contribución al cambio climático.
  • SIN impuestos sobre la renta en ingresos de USD$ 120,000 o menos más compensación de pérdida de ingresos imponiendo una tasa de impuesto sobre la renta marginal sobre los ingresos mayores a USD$ 1.2 millones más equilibrio del presupuesto y reducción

Biografía

I am a scientist and an engineer by education, a small business owner for the last 30+ years, a 35+ years resident of Orange County, and a long-time activist for causes pertaining to improved quality of life for all citizens of our great country. I believe in an effective and efficient Government, focused on issues of the “common good” that can only be addressed through an honest democratic process by citizen legislators, representing WE the People – not by career politicians representing narrow special interests. I believe in the free market system, but not in crony capitalism which privatizes profits and socializes losses. I believe in a free market system with adequate safeguards for consumers and protection of our environment. I believe in a free market system with a level playing field between capital and labor, one that provides safe working conditions and living wages not subject to threats of “outsourcing”.

I AM RUNNING TO BE YOUR NEXT CONGRESSMAN.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Is it acceptable in America that the top 0.1% now owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%? Is it acceptable that 99% of new income is going to the top 1%? Is it acceptable that Wall Street and billionaires are spending hundreds of millions of dollars trying to buy elections? This is why we must overturn Citizens United and move to public funding of elections!

Is it right that in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, most of our young people either can't afford to go to college or leave school deeply in debt? If we stand up, fight back, we can do a lot better!

THAT'S WHY I'M RUNNING FOR CONGRESS.

We must make a fundamental decision. Do we continue the 40-year decline of our middle class and the growing gap between the very rich and everyone else, or do we fight for a progressive economic agenda that creates jobs, increases income, protects the environment, addresses climate change, failed trade policies, and immigration reform, makes public college education attainable, provides healthcare for all, strengthens Social Security, Medicare, Tricare, and ADA, and promotes diplomacy over war?

Are we prepared to take on the enormous economic and political power of the billionaire class, or do we continue to slide into economic and political oligarchy? These are the most important questions of our time, and how we answer them will determine the future of our country.

I'M THE ONLY CANDIDATE ENDORSED BY THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

I'm also the only Democratic candidate in this race that has been endorsed by the California Democratic Party (CADEM), Democratic Party of Orange County (DPOC), Orange County Young Democrats (OCYD), and Progressive Democrats of America (PDA).
