Issues

Here is just a few issues that need to be addressed. Feel free to contact me with any issues you or your community has. 

Food insecurities

Food insecurity is a growing problem in the United States. To improve food affordability and accessibility, several strategies can be considered. One effective approach is to implement policies that support local agriculture and farmers. This can help reduce transportation costs and promote access to fresh, locally-produced food. Incentivizing grocery stores to establish themselves in underserved areas would also improve food accessibility. Additionally, supporting and promoting community gardens and farmers' markets can contribute to local food availability.
Another important issue is food waste, which can be addressed through awareness campaigns and collaboration with food distribution networks. Surplus food can be redirected to those in need. To reduce production costs for farmers and lower food prices, measures like providing subsidies or access to affordable resources could be introduced.
We should also increase nutrition education programs to empower individuals to make healthier and more cost-effective food choices. Targeted assistance programs like food vouchers or subsidies for low-income families can help ensure that basic nutritional needs are met.
The government, businesses, and community groups must work together to create a plan to ensure that everyone can easily access and afford the food they need.



Reproductive rights

I believe it's important for women to have the freedom to decide whether to continue with a pregnancy or not. Allowing safe and legal abortion options gives women control over their own lives and health. This is especially crucial in difficult situations like health concerns, fetal abnormalities, or cases of sexual assault. I would also like to stress the significance of providing access to birth control and accurate information about reproductive health, ensuring that women can make responsible choices about their bodies and futures.

Men should not dictate abortion rights as they don't experience the physical and emotional aspects of pregnancy. I understand the irony, I simply want to put the choice back into the hands of women everywhere. 


Climate

Addressing climate change requires a comprehensive approach. Using energy efficiently in industries, transportation, and homes can reduce overall energy consumption. We need to keep and expand forests that help absorb CO2,  support biodiversity, and store carbon. Encouraging sustainable farming, reducing deforestation. Investing in technologies that capture and store carbon emissions would prevent them from entering the atmosphere. 
Globally working together to set and achieve emission reduction goals is crucial. Improving public transportation can cut emissions from the transportation sector. Implementing policies that encourage sustainability, Actually penalize companies for environmental harm, and support clean technologies is essential. Lastly, raising awareness about climate change and educating people on individual actions for a sustainable future is crucial for fostering a collective commitment to change.


Tax reform

To alleviate financial strain on low-income individuals and families, several measures can be implemented.  The Earned Income Tax Credit should be expanded to provide more financial support for low-income working individuals and families. Additionally, enhancements to the Child Tax Credit could offer substantial relief to families with children. Introducing or expanding tax deductions for education expenses supports low-income families in pursuing education. Establishing tax credits for job training and education, along with increasing the standard deduction, can enhance employment opportunities and reduce taxable income for low-income individuals. Providing tax credits or deductions for transportation costs and ensuring access to free tax preparation services further eases the financial burden on those with lower incomes. Together, these measures aim to foster economic stability and upward mobility.

 


Universal Healthcare

Universal healthcare is considered better for many reasons. First, it means that everyone in the country, regardless of income,  can get the medical help they need. Universal healthcare focuses on preventing health issues before they become serious, saving money in the long run. It's more cost-effective because it puts all healthcare services under one system, reducing administrative costs. It makes things simpler for healthcare providers by having one system instead of dealing with many insurance plans. When everyone can access healthcare, the country's productivity will rise because people can work without worrying about their health. Removing financial barriers means people get medical help sooner, leading to better and quicker treatment. Universal health care promotes fairness by making sure everyone, no matter their income, get's the same level of healthcare. Countries with universal healthcare often have a more competitive workforce because their employees are healthier and more productive. Lastly, universal healthcare systems handle public health crises better because they cover more people and work together effectively.
