WE DESERVE BETTER

For All of Us

A LIVING WAGE

There is no state in this country in which:

  • An adult can live on less than $12/hr

  • A couple can live on less than $11/hr

  • A couple & 2 kids on less than $19/hr

 

Our government is choosing to force millions to suffer in poverty so that CEOs can keep getting richer. The time to fight for $15 has passed - if a parent & a child cannot survive on less than $19 it is our moral obligation to fight for $20.

A GREEN JOBS GUARANTEE

Millions of our neighbors are still unemployed, many of whose jobs may never return. Trade professions and schools are dwindling and shuttering. A program that includes training and job placement in sustainable industries will assist them in achieving their better life.

A REBUILT COUNTRY

Our national infrastructure is failing before our eyes and millions of able-bodied American's are without a job. We can put our people back to work upgrading our roads, bridges, power grids, and utility systems to a sustainable infrastructure so that future generations can live in a country with a better environment and abundant resources.

We can actually make America a place better than it's ever been,

we just have to be brave enough to not back down when challenged by greed & corruption.

A BETTER ELECTION PROCESS

One That Hears All of Us

Nothing in this country will truly change/get better until we dig corporate claws out of Congress

 

CHALLENGE CITIZENS UNITED

If money is protected speech under the Constitution and corporations merely represent the people employed within - then the amount of money they can contribute, even under PACs, should be limited to what every citizen is: $2700 per election cycle.

END LEGALIZED BRIBERY

Senator Ted Cruz recently published an Op-Ed in which he admitted to taking $2.6 million from corporations to look the other way for taxes owed to the federal government. Not only is this why we struggle so hard to get quality people elected to office, but it is also why we cannot get a living wage, universal healthcare, or a budget that works for the working class/people. Whether red or blue, our politicians have been bought & sold to not work for us.

A BETTER CONGRESS

One Accountable to All of Us

CLOSE LOBBYIST REVOLVING DOOR

After serving as an elected representative you have access to restricted areas for life. There is a phenomenon known as the revolving door from which members of Congress easily slip into a board, director, or CEO role at major corporations, banks, and lobbying firms.

BAN CONGRESS FROM OWNING STOCKS

Our representatives benefit from knowledge that no other people outside of the Capital have access to and on more occasions than we can count have used that knowledge to inform their decision of whether to buy or sell stocks [at a certain time]

MANDATE CORPORATE DIVESTMENT

A BETTER ECONOMY

One That Works For All of Us

CAP CEO TO WORKER PAY

It's not wrong to work hard and make money, but billionaires make their money off the exploitation of their hard workers and we cannot allow this abuse to continue. I support a currently proposed piece of legislation in Congress -

The "Tax Excessive CEO Pay Act will raise workers’ wages and ensure wealthy corporations are paying their fair share."

END STOCK BUYBACK SCHEMES

words words words

what do they avoid by doing this? is there legislation to remedy?

CLOSE CORPORATE TAX LOOPHOLES

Why do average citizens pay more in taxes than corporations? Because they can afford to pay someone to find loopholes that turn profits into losses. 

For too long the system has existed to enrich the few at the expense of the masses

A BETTER JUSTICE SYSTEM

One That Protects All of Us

DEFUND THE POLICE

This call to action is about reimagining community safety so that the excessive amount of budgetary funds going to arm & militarize our police will be redirected into training and implementing mental health rapid responders, social workers, and other types of peace-keeping or safety personnel that communities decide they need.

END FOR PROFIT PRISONS

words words words

CARE NOT COPS

The COPS in Schools Grant established in 2004 paid out over $753 million by 2005 to schools to hire police officers in schools ... that $753 million funding more teachers, resources, books, renovations, and technology would have benefitted those children more than those police officers ever could.

 

If every person living within our borders had healthcare, a home, an education, and a job with a living wage, our crime would decrease, our productivity would skyrocket, and our economy would boom stronger than it ever has.

It is an indisputable fact that people work, learn, and function better when they have their basic needs met -

you cannot thrive when you are struggling to just survive.
